I love creating my paintings and, as simple as it sounds, just want to make beautiful artwork I’d like to have in my own home. I started painting again after a 40 year break (yes, 40!) and have always made oil painting my first love. I recently moved to a remote area of central Georgia where I'm currently taming my 5 acres of wilderness raising chickens, veggies and lavender. Well, the lavender is a work in progress... I'm a messy painter (What's that saying about a tidy desk?), and my artist friends all know I have no idea where all those paint caps have disappeared to. Now, where did I leave that palette knife?
