SHIRLEY BLAND Wall Art
I discovered the joy of painting at the tail end of a business career. From a basic drawing class at the community college, I discovered a passion I'd never known I had. It became a twenty year love affair. From those first feeble attempts at putting my ideas onto canvas, I have seen my life change and grow. I've traveled many places to see and paint sights this little Oklahoma girl only dreamed of! I've watched my easel sink into wet sand on the Pacific Coast, fought drone sized mosquitoes on the Atlantic Shores and lost a painting down a mountainside in Sedona, and relished every moment! I share my passion with all ages, teaching children as young as five and adults as old as 90, assuring them that inside each of us is a joy for color and creativity.
