I've hesitated to put much down, in that I am just a learning student of art and painting. I've always loved art, color, pens, paper, ink...paint...you name it. Trying to capture something I've seen for myself, or through a photograph is something I've desired to do. I've a lot of work to do and learn. But, it's fun...relaxing along with exciting when something seems to turn out sort of good (in my mind's eye)!
I have taken lessons throughout my adult life, off and on; but being in Maine, there is so much inspiration for me. I am currently studying under Jan Kilburn, of Damariscotta, ME who has helped me to be a more loose painter. I love watercolors and am always amazed at what one can do with a bit of water and paint.
My brother, Michael Sheeler, is my inspiration and has my admiration. He is an accomplished artist in Kailua-Kona, HI who has been painting all his life. He is so supportive of my attempts. I'll never reach his heights with his craft, but enjoyment is what I am searching for in mine.
Since my last entry (?)..I have moved to Titusville, FL., where I am now connected with the wonderful StoneFire Art Gallery and Studios. With all the inspiration around me, I am immersing myself into my watercolors. Subject matters are changing somewhat, and will soon be adding some of my more recent additions.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my limited works.
