Oil Painting - Landscapes


Hello, my name is Kelly and until I was about 40 years old I had problems making stick figures look human. But I had always wanted to be able to draw and do oil paintings, so one day I went to the local art store and purchased a teach yourself to paint kit. I took it home and set things up and began to paint, at first it didn't look like art at all, but then all of the sudden trees and hills appeared and I had produced my first landscape in oil. My friends stopped teasing me and complemented my painting. This little bit of encouragement was all I needed, I tried another and liked it enough to keep on doing it. I took a class at the local Junior College, and a correspondence art class, picked up books, bought supplies started doing drawings, and paintings in all different mediums and on all different surfaces. Some of those friends that teased me in the beginning have encouraged me to sell my work, and backed it up by purchasing some of my art themselves. So I am now taking their advice...
