I have been putting this first post off forever because there are so many great blogs about painting out there. Well that and maybe a little fear of sharing what happens in my brain! So to begin very simply, this blog will be about my journey as a painter. If along the way I am able to share some of my discoveries with you, and that helps further your ambitions, that is an added bonus. I am very aware of many, many people out there who know much more than I, so your insight on topics and discussions are welcome. I have been told time and time again that painting is a long road, there is no short cut, and I believe patience is the strongest asset a serious painter can have. Well, patience and a strong community of other artists for knowledge, inspiration and encouragement.
As for myself, I am currently enrolled in the Masters Program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA). My B.F.A. was from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Apparently, I only enroll in schools that have names so long that they are best referred to in acronymic format. I have been fortunate enough to be guided by some really great people, who also happen to be incredible painters.
