I’ve always loved and collected all types of art but never considered myself an artist. I previously would create sculptures in copper, a few that I still have around the house. Early in 2020, I bought a canvas and some oil paints because I felt like painting something even though I haven’t had an art class or any art training since elementary school. Covid game me time and I created my first ever painting of a friend riding a bicycle. I immediately became hooked and bought more canvases and through necessity found myself learning about fat versus lean, color biases, and drying times. I quickly challenged myself with different scenes and see myself moving into the surrealism style perhaps following my favorite artist Gigino Falconi. What a wonderful adventure it has been so far and I hope that others enjoy the ride.
