"When I start drawing an ordinary thing , I realize how extraordinary it is , sheer miracle." Frederick Frank

This tree reminded me of Charlie Browns , Oh Christmas Tree. I am going to NY for a few days so I will not be posting till Thurs or Fri. I am taking a class in color so hopefully will come back with plenty of inspiration to share.
I am a native of Charleston , South Carolina. My early artistic expression was through the lens of a camera where it was a passion to capture the unique expressions of the human spirit. That passion is still alive , but through paint brush,ink, and oils. I am most inspired when painting from observation of life and nature.
I am in my third year at The Art Academy University online MFA. My classes have challenged and inspired me more than I ever imagined. I am in my fifth year of being a member of The Charleston Artist Collective online gallery. It has been a great experience to be with a local group of artist who stretch with the monthly themes all the while giving back to our community a percentage of our sales. It is also a pleasure to be showing in a new gallery in Charlottesville, Va. with a talented group of artist from around the country.
