My First Post

"Comfort" - Sold
10x10 Acrylic on Canvas

Well, about six months ago I decided I wanted to paint. So I went out and bought all the supplies I thought I needed, along with several books about oil painting and off I went. Since then I have ordered instructional DVD's from Johnny Lilliedahl, Hall Groat II and Erin Pendleton and I loved them all! Then I signed up for a real class! I have been on a spiritual journey with 5 women that I have grown to love and we have painted together for 8 weeks. Carole Foret in Athens has been our awesome teacher and she has taught me a lot. So, it seems that the natural progression for anyone who wants to be an artist is to start a I am!  The first painting I chose to post is a still life I set up in my kitchen. I love coffee and I love the Starbuck's coffee bags! The colors just draw me in, like the smell of freshly brewed coffee. I know the Lord created coffee to comfort my soul!
