Oil Painting - Portraits & Figures


Being in Interior Design for years, what began as a way for me to get some nice artwork on my walls has turned into something I never could have imagined. Working in design, I would come across beautiful paintings, but couldn't afford them. And, being a consummate "do-it-yourselfer"...I thought that if I could just get someone to get me started, I could paint things for my walls. I knew I had good taste...just not enough money to support my good taste. I also knew that deep down inside of me there was a desire to paint. So, at age 36 my infatuation with painting began. I discovered a wonderful instructor whose main focus was watercolor, which I enjoyed, but wanted more. I then tried acrylic and finally oil. After painting in oils and not getting the results I wanted, I found an instructor of "Old Masters" techniques. I was in love with oil painting from that moment on. Painting is my passion and a gift from God! It is not something that I take for granted...
