Many a time, the little corner where I paint has been like a citadel, a place where I can escape & get lost in painting. There’s something about the painting process, something to do with the intense concentration & the quiet creativity, that gives an artist a sense of inner peace, for the most part anyway! I love to do oil paintings of people, flowers & wildlife. Painting in oils can be tricky, & there are times when it’s extremely frustrating, but despite that - or maybe because of it - it can be incredibly rewarding too. Life as an artist is a never-ending process of discovery. There’s always something new to try, & I look forward to exploring it all.
