Welcome to my blog!
My blog has evolved quite a bit since I started it. I set it up mostly for my photography, but as I have decided to concentrate a bit more on my painting it has taken a bit of a different direction. The year I devoted to my photography was great. It was for the most part a “daily photo” blog, which forced me to photograph every day, even if it was right before I went to bed. I learned a whole lot about my camera (Canon 40D) & photography, I highly recommend doing that to anyone that wants to learn to be a better photographer.
Now for my painting. I am mostly self-taught (in everything I do), except for some art classes in high school (a very long time ago), a couple of classes at the local art museum and a workshop. I think I have been an artist since I could hold a pencil as a toddler, but it took me getting older to figure out that it is what I really want to do. I have pretty much learned everything the hard way on my own, and of course struggled with self doubt, but I am a stubborn and determined woman, and I am going to do my best to be a great artist. My painting posts are to share my experiences as an artist, as well as show off my paintings and maybe get some feedback. I will share the books that have inspired me, techniques that I enjoy, and anything else I feel like sharing at the moment. Please feel free to send me an email if you have any questions!
