Hi everyone! I am a retired special education teacher who has been very busy for the past 30 years. I began painting in college and loved acrylic paints. I also love to draw with pencil colors. I have not done any art to speak of in all those years of teaching. If you are a teacher or know one, you will understand why. I recently retired in May of this year and am starting my new career as an artist. So far, I have completed one pencil color drawing and two paintings. I do realistic paintings but hope to explore other styles as I learn more about my craft.
