So nice to find this program. I'm Barbara Sawyer I live near Culver, Oregon USA it is in Central Oregon the heart of recreation and beautiful scenery . From my home we see 7 snow capped Volcanoes Making up part of the Cascade Range of Mountains ... I have not painted in over 35 years I'm 73, Sept 9th and now have the time to paint . . I am self taught and have found a few helpful web pages to get me started painting once again. My favorite media is oils and feel of the flow of the paint. This is one of them with Richard Robison's art. Some times it is hard to stop painting to fix dinner for my husband of 55 years. but he loves what I do so that makes it more enjoyable
I have taught graphic digital photography and computer science for several years to Seniors in the winter while being a snow bird in the SW . This winter I had the time to pick up a paint brush and started painting just things that were in my idea bank. I mostly paint from memory and some times from photos as with the class picture I just finished . I forgot what joy it brings to create from the heart. Im looking forward to meeting more artists on line ... I live in a quiet are and makes it hard to join any art groups or galleries.
