Welcome to my paintings page!
I have many hobbies. But my most favorite thing to do is paint.
Painting: stimulates my mind, frees me from worry, makes me feel happy.
I sort of suck at it- ha! And that's OK!
it's actually probably better that way. It wouldn't be as fun if I had any expectations of doing something great. :)
I only paint for myself, and no one besides family and friends have even seen my work (unless you're reading this now!).
My style of painting:
What really interests me is portraiture. I have done a few still lifes, but I really prefer to paint people.
I have had no training, but learned to paint by lots of practice, and by studying art books of the artists I love. (lots of Modigliani, Kahlo, Eakins, Balthus, Matisse, and various renaissance artists)
