I love drawing and painting, writing poetry, and carving wood. It relaxes me. My art is a reflection of my life, interests and feelings.
I am inspired by learning new things, constantly trying to improve my knowledge and skills. I love seeing subjects come alive out of a blank canvas, piece of paper, or stick of wood.
Why do I do it? It is fun!
I am self taught, to the degree any of us are self taught. I have taken various classes through the years, watched videos, and read books.
Writing poetry, started at twelve
After that, dared not delve
Compared myself to my peers
My confidence lagged. . . for years
Mine were trite, all concealing.
Theirs deep, too revealing.
Sensitive, fragile, I was then,
would not put my heart to pen.
Today tales I have a lot
Too old to care if out they got.
Living with flair, have full life.
Time to share internal strife.
