Who is it?

A rare time when I took a picture of one of my Paintings or drawings.
I was disappointed that this didn't turn out too well in a post but I remember when I painted it and then took this photo, the paint was still wet and as any of you that oil paint know, when oils are still wet they reflect the light and distort the painting. But I know I had no choice on this one because it was a rush order. And I only took the picture because my father was a great John Wayne fan and I wanted to share what I had painted with him even though we lived a distance apart at the time.
I painted and drew and sold all of it all off as if it were nothing, now I wish I had kept a portfolio of everything I had done. The reason ...
I am thinking of taking painting and drawing up again, and this time not for profit. I had quit my art because I moved to this little house and I felt I no longer had the space to paint. But I have talked to my daughter Mindi, that always gives me encouragement! And well ... I am going to do it!

Hi Faira, I'm glad to see you are going to get back into your art, you are obviously very talented! If space is limited you might like to look into Art Cards http://www.art-cards.org for some of your work - they are a lot of fun and quite addictive:)

Cheers

Michelle

I think that painting is amazing! And I'm an artist,too..it looks like a photograph..I mean that as a compliment! Extrordinary...Oh do go back to your painting, Faira....this has an abstract feeling only in the fact that the colors are so personal, if that makes any sense...Love it!!!

Now there's something I haven't seen in a long time. It looks like a photograph of Marion Michael Morrison himself. Really nice work. Who's next? Gary Cooper ;-)

Caroline, I actually got my talent from an a famous artist Uncle on my Mothers side of the family. He had a studio in California and sold his art work for a fortune. Me I just tinker with it. Also on my fathers side I have an Uncle who does extrodinary wood carvings!
