I am a self-taught artist attempting to learn more about painting - something I really enjoy. Since I was very young, I have always enjoyed drawing. Painting on a canvas has been something I have wanted to do, but never really picked up a brush and paint until several years ago. After I graduated from high school, I worked in a grocery store where I was able practice my art skills building displays and drawing the weekly window ads. I even picked up airbrushing, but I did not stick with that for very long. College was a priority and finding time to work on art was pretty limited; especially since fishing and other fun activities kind of took precedence.
I finished college in 1989 and started my career programming computers. My art skills have been beneficial in my career, but as I get older I am finding that art is more of way to escape work than to be work. Hopefully soon I will have more time to put into this pass time I have picked up. I look forward to taking some real training classes with real artists and pick up some tips and tools that will help me to improve.
I hope you enjoy viewing my artwork. And please don't hesitate to leave comments good or bad. One can't improve without listening to what others observe.
