I started painting because I grew up with art classes and wanted to learn more about art. I would say painting is my favorite class. It’s so easy. You can sit there and do it. It doesn’t take much time at all really.
What advice would you give to new aspiring artists around the world?
You need a desire to paint. You need a lot of patience. You still need to start with a beginner’s project. Be patient. Learn from mistakes.
“I have always had a passion for art and painting.”
What’s the most difficult piece of advice you have ever received?
I have always had a passion for art and painting. After my mom passed away, I felt a burning desire to do something and try to find a way to honor her. With this burning desire, I started painting more. Even though I struggled with the beginnings, I found that I couldn’t stop. I would paint for an hour at a time to try to paint a portrait of my mom. That was the beginning of my love for that piece. I don’t know how much longer that piece can go on with passion. At some point, I’m happy to say I have stopped. That painting is over for now.
What do you want for your 10-year anniversary?
One thing that I have always had is that I have always had a passion for art and painting. I can’t say it will be the same way when I’m 80, but I believe my passion will be stronger. I’d like to paint on my 50th birthday. I do enjoy painting but I am not interested in just going to an art show and enjoying it. I do really want to have a great time at a gallery, and it won’t be easy. I have tried to learn to become the best artist I can be and I won’t stop until I reach that point.
Thank you, and until next time,
