Hello and welcome!!! I will tell you a little about myself.
I've been drawing and painting since I was a child. My paternal grandmother bought me my first oil paints ( in a wooden box), brushes and canvas, I was 8 years old. I was thinking about this the other day, and I remembered my first painting was a ballerina, and I gave it to my maternal grandmother, and over a long stretch of time, it has disappeared, which is too bad because I think my kids would have found it to be funny!!
I took art classes in school and when I was raising my children, I did some drawing and painting, usually for gifts.
About 11 years ago I began painting images on the computer using various software. And this has become my passion. And I hope that at least in some of my artwork, that passion is visible.
