Media: Oil Painting
As a child I drew horses constantly in class, when I should have been paying attention to the teacher. When I hit the self-conscious teens, I didn’t try again for about 40 years. When I started thinking about retiring, I started to spend time with some other Anderson Islanders drawing, and then I tried oil-painting. I was so excited that I could make a painting that actually looked like a pepper, even an artichoke! At that point, I thought I knew a lot. Now, after painting for about eight years, I realize I know very little. I’m still trying, though, and having more fun as I’m able to apply things I’ve been taught by some very generous teachers.
