Hi, I am a 52 year young woman, that paints for the peace and tranquility. I am a self taught artist that loves the feel and texture of the oils. I started painting in November of 2009 and haven't been able to stop since. Some days my painting is all I know. I hope a little of what I feel when I paint the picture transfers to the viewer.
