Profile Information

How long have you been painting? Doing any kind of art?
I painted and took art classes all through high school and one or two in college. I literally did nothing after that for almost 25 years until taking two painting classes in the spring of 2014 at our local art center. Now I paint every day!
What other mediums have you used?
I do acrylic landscape paintings from photos my wife or I take from places we travel. And we love to travel. Every once in a while I contemplate trying oils...
Are their specific things you would like to learn?
Better brush technique and to just be more confident and fearless! To know when to push it and when to stop!
Where did you learn about this website?
Googled painting videos...
