Award winning and selected works…
In the summer of 2017, I met an artist named Ellie Harold, who offered art workshops for oil painters in Frankfort, MI. I decided to enroll in one of her classes and happily have been practicing with oil paints ever since. Initially driven by the need to express my feelings of loss, painting has allowed me to honor a lifelong appreciation of art and my early interest in realizing my own art-making potential.
I set up a still life in my basement studio and attempt to paint what I see. I am learning about rendering shapes, lights and darks, shadowing, color palate, color mixing, texture, and so on. I am beginning to add more complexity as well, most recently, by placing and painting a still life in front of a window to increase depth in the painting.
I always have the spirit and support of the family members in this beautiful journey that I am creating.
