paints, pastel, charcoal, and graphite.

Painting I did in 2009, "Church - Thomas Kinkade"

I just love being an art major.

I'm currently working on my portfolio for scholarships. I can honestly say that I feel really good about my work. 

You know, I actually had no idea I had any talent at all until my sophomore year of high school. I had just moved to a new school, and my art teacher just handed me a paint brush and some paint. She said basically said, "do your thing."  Mrs Bryant was a big believer in "independent study" when it came to art. While I appreciate the guidance and critique my current art professors offer me, I am forever grateful for the lack of restrictions with lots, and lots of leeway, thus my first ever "real" painting was born! A rendition of Thomas Kinkade's I'll be home for Christmas.

  3. That's fantastic. This post reminded me of a story in one of my state's newspapers recently about a gentleman who was in his 80's before he realized he had artistic talent, and this guy was good! It's not about when you discover it, or how long you've been passionate about it. It's about what you do with it once you find it. The important part is bringing emotion, beauty, into the world. :)
