Hi friends, being that I have had no formal training in the arts and am totally self taught, I like to give myself a challenge with each piece that I create. The last painting -"Leopard," was the first ever close up of an animal I did in Oils. My new project will be the first ever person that I have painted titled "Misty Dreams." It is slow going as I need to find time in my hustle and bustle of life to get it done, and it is quite the challenge for me to say the least. Here is the latest update of the progress so far.
