Scroll down for my most recent pieces and paintings
I am a hobbyist, but what is a professional artist? The Canada Council for the Arts says a professional artist has specialized art training, is recognized by peers in the art genre, makes a time commitment and has a history of presentation or publication.
Most recent pieces
In between projects where I am working with words, I dabble at art. I do it for my mental health and well being. And in 2017 art was part of my therapy to recover from cancer treatment and surgery.
- Over the past decade, to pick up new techniques, I have taken classes, gone to workshops, and attended retreats from Sedona to Harrison Lake. And, of course, gone to art galleries--a few of my pix were inspired by the Picasso exhibit at VAG. I'll post some of my instructors here soon.
- I am physically clumsy, am all thumbs, and have a slap-dash approach painting (outside of work with words) so I am not suited to detail work but I tackle it anyway.
- Thanks for taking a look at the things that have been fun to do over the years.
