In 2017, I started going to "paint parties" which all the craze. Several people get together and someone teaches them all how to paint one painting all at a time. It was a great way to learn some basics.
After the 5th one, I decided to try it on my own. Anyone who knows me knows I don't do anything a little at a time. So .. I went to Michael's and bought canvas (several sizes), paint paper, brushes, and paint in all colors. That day I started painting. I started by finding samples on the internet and making them my own. With hints for improvement and praise of things done well from my friend Christina Hull, I have improved.
By 2018, I was painting from my own photographs and some I found on the internet.
Some of the paintings turned out good, some not so good, but some turned out "how did I do that?" wow!" and "I did that!!!"
When I make a painting and post it on Facebook, it is usually available for adoption. About 75% of my paintings have been adopted from my friends and family. I love this That way I can keep painting and not fill up my house too badly!
I am posting all of them here so you can see them. Each year has the most current paintings first.
