Through all the chaos that is my life right now I have been able to finish several paintings. These are a couple of them.
I call this "Love You To Death". I'm not sure why I had to paint the skull but I did and I like it.
This one is "Study in Red". I just love this one too, especially the glass.
What I love about both of them are that I set up the still life's, took the photos and painted them without really drawing them first. I just started painting on the prepped canvas and created these all by myself, without the help at all from my instructor. I've done a few like that but these for some reason give me a bit of pride in my developing talent. I really want to keep learning so in September I have also signed up for a portrait drawing class with the continuing art class with Ross.
What is so cool is that at the age of 56 and a lifetime of searching for what I want to be when I grow up, I think I have FINALLY found it. I want, I am an artist. It is exhilarating and makes me so happy inside that this is pouring out of me that I can hardly stand it.
