I have been dabbling in art in one form or another since I was a little kid. I have never graduated...just dabbled...for 60 years.
While in Florida on our first "snowbird" trip, a small group of artists, mentors, and friends took me under their collective wings and gave me the confidence and inspiration I was missing, not to mention the "technique" and clarity that I needed.
I have been painting watercolors since early in 2013 My style is probably best described as "loosesortof" or "fewest strokes wins". Each painting speaks to me on some level; some make me cry, some are good for a laugh; but most have some emotion hooked to them and maybe that is the reason I prefer painting people or something of the "human condition".
I have never enjoyed anything as much as painting, and this new slant in my life has put a smile on my face that I cannot "paint" off!
