I started painting about 3 years ago as a way to escape. I was going through some emotional and physical issues, so to take my thoughts away I decided to paint a picture. It ended up horrible and the worst I even had no idea how to clean my hands and brushes from oil painting. I cleaned it with water and soap, ended up with paint all over myself. Well, I’m stubborn, so I’ve decided to make it work. I googled and went on YouTube to learn some essentials about oil painting. I found 10 week class program in Savannah GA with Karen Bradley, finished those. And the more I tried, the better results I had. I was painting landscapes and still life. Last year, when I moved to NC I decided to paint human body, face and it’s an amazing experience.
