Hello, I’m from Michigan originally and have been living in Daytona Beach, Florida the past 20 years now. I have always loved photography and dabbled in painting about 40 years ago for a few months till i couldn’t take the pressure (I’m a perfectionist).
I then took it up again about 5 years ago and have pretty much been consistantly painting (along with some graphite drawings too). I still find alot of pressure in feeling “obligated” to paint. I try to work around it though giving myself some time off now and then.
I’m not one of those artist’s who start a new one the minute the last one is finished. I also like astronomy using my 8″ reflector.
