Hello, my name is Ron Anthony and Im a self taught artist. A few years ago I had a reawakening to do art again. As a 3rd grader I discovered I had some talent and improved a little in time. However, when I attempted something difficult like sketching a person, I was unsuccessful and discouraged. In time I picked up the pencil again and realized that my patience and skills had mature. I quickly began to master some aspects of sketching and later improved with painting as well.
Art has been my own therapy. I sometimes get distracted in free and pleasant thoughts and realize it has taken me 3 hours to complete a sketch when it should taken only an hour. It's a great deal for me to take an 80 year wrinkle and unclear photo of a deceased love one and give it life again. I compliment any artist who have the talent to do so and is truly amazed of how far my skill level has come.
