About "Weddings 4"
After having a serious cycling accident and having not painted for a while, my son and his wife were with us for a short season waiting on a USA Visa. With having snapped my prominent hand tendon, I was unable to do anything and was told my hand would probably never be the same again. This spurred me on to practice and exercise as requested by the doctors and I vowed when my hand was 'working' again, I would paint all the time. I have stuck to this vow, despite working full time too.
I'm a self-taught artist that is motivated by God's creation and the beauty of life all around me. I choose random subjects and love to capture anything that catches my eye. My work can range from detailed to somewhat impressionistic. Art is all around us, all you have to do is look! Most of the work I have done recently has been commissioned work which has often involved portraiture. I thoroughly enjoy doing art that tells a story. I trust that my ability to bring life to a painting speaks to you.
