I have studied Art, Dress Design, and Home Decorating, but like Painting best. I have been painting over twenty years and have sold over three hundred paintings. I started in Oils, do some Acrylics, but enjoy doing Watercolors more than the others. I like Art, Photography, Writing Poems, Writing and Printing Books, Cooking, Gardening, and Sewing. My Favorite Artist is Van Gogh. In spite of his suffering and hard life, he painted what I think are the Most Beautiful paintings. When in the presence of his Original Paintings, I find it hard to leave, preferring them over all the others. His Blossoming Trees are Magnificent. I also like his use of bright colors.
