I considered Art a luxury that I could not afford when I was young and raising a family. But as soon as I retired, I wasted no time getting myself enrolled in courses and buying my first easel and painting supplies.
I have been painting for almost 25 years now. I mainly work in oils because it is a pleasure to work with. I can spend a few weeks on one painting, then have fun with some smaller works for a while or in-between, while the oil dries!
Topics for me do vary. I find inspiration in all sorts of things and it sure is not difficult living On Vancouver Island.
