I’m still surprised to find myself thinking of myself as an artist because I took up painting as a writer who wanted to write about painting. So in order to research I enrolled in some art classes and discovered I found it easier than writing and that I quite liked what I was producing. I still write! But painting is such a pleasure so here I am. Oooops, is how it feels. I paint in oils. It’s all pretty intuitive. I have been looking at art forever.
