I am a 74-year-old disabled Veteran. As a teenager, I loved pencil drawing famous Native Americans. After that I did a lot pencil drawings if Roses. I had no desire to paint until about 6 months ago. Everything I know about painting, I learned from hours and hours of studying on the internet. One of the teachers there told me if I really want to, I can . I believe that. I really want to. I only paint landscapes, beach and ocean scapes and florals. My goal is to paint the beauty of nature, and there by honoring the Creator of nature. My painting called Space Alien DNA started out as floral. I love the satisfaction when I finish a painting I like. I have done very few of those yet. I have a lot of room for improvement. I am trying to pay my dues as an artist.
