I am a weekend and vacation hobby painter!! My preferences are for watercolors, pastels, acrylics and oils and everything that can produce colors! Love to paint nature and animals but also abstracts, as abstracts are always snapshots and are so unique. I learned all techniques from different books and developed my own techniques to have some fun! As I am an impatient painter, most of my paintings are taking me some 15 minutes to maximum 3 hours....I love and enjoy painting and see it as a creative opportunity and any happy accidents make me more learn and improve my style! The painting brings me simply relaxation, joy and happiness. Any feedback on my paintings is always greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
