April 2021 Artist of the Month
After experiencing some health issues in 2006 I thought about what I would regret not doing in my life. I didn’t have to think long. How many times had I said ”Someday I am going to take an art class”? “Someday” came Jan 7 2008 when I walked into Al Camaradi’s Tuesday class at the National Art League. It was love at first sight. Al was 90 had a walker and an aide. He was everything I wanted to be when I grew up. He died 3 months later but I am so grateful to have met him.
Since then I have had many great teachers. To name a few there are Howard Rose, Rob Silverman, and Gloria Yudkin. I’ve taken workshops with others.
I’ve learned so much from my fellow artists. They are a source of inspiration, support and friendship. I am happy to paint and show with them.
What I love about selling and showing paintings is that each painting stands on its own merit. For me it’s not really about the artist, it’s about whether the painting makes a connection with others.
I have been lucky to be rewarded by the leagues and to have sold a few from time to time.
