About my Painting Art

I am an emerging artist. I started painting in January of 2017.  I have always wanted to paint.  After having success with my abstract fine art photography, a number of friends and others encouraged me to paint.  I waited for a while so I could concentrate on my fine art photography and have a clear direction with that art.  After about two years, I decided it was time to try my hand at painting.

I quickly discovered the difference between light and pigment.  My first painting literally looked like mud.  I didn't give up.  I plowed ahead and kept painting to refine this new art and find my voice.  After about 3 months, my paintings began to look like what I imagined in my mind.  Pablo Picasso summed it up when he said, "I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else."

 

Since it has been only a short time since I started painting, there is little more to say at this point other then, I love my new found creative outlet and you will be seeing a lot more from me in both my fine art abstract painting and photography.

 

I recently started designing clothing and accessories that can be purchased through Vida.  Check out my Clothing page or go to ShopVIDA.com (opens in a new window).

Thank you for visiting!  Come back often!  I am always creating new art and I change, rotate and add new art frequently...
