grammy i have had more then a running start..for 15 years i drew only with a pencil or pen and ink. It was all i could afford, i loved color but art supplies are so expensive, so i really learned to draw, if all you work in is pencil sigh

then i worked in etched glass design where i had to think very graphic, two tone to make my images work.

3 and a half years at the Kansas City ART Institute working on my illustration and design degree didn't hurt a bit either

then photo retouching / portrait artist meant i learned to match my colors fast and what lightened and darkened what..(the hard part to learn) because i did it 12 hours a day for a year. 6 am to 6 pm

after that began the bells, boxes, rocks that allowed me to work on my painting strengths..(still working on that...sigh...)

finally i felt ready for canvas

my favorite qoute is "the life so short the craft so long to learn"

its sooooo true

working like this is yahoooo fun hehe...you dont have to mix paint to get the right color, and thinking graphically makes working with as few of colors as possible (but using the very rightest ones ) a total blast for me. I can make an image in minutes that with paint would take me oh sooooo much longer, then all the blending

what is hard is going back to the grindstone and not sitting here having fun

I like to draw to though Im not so great! Once in a while I can connect pencil and paper and make a dog look like a dog. I like to use the doodle thing on Yahoo Messenger with my friends.
