Artwork by Frank Paquette
I am a 49 year old with a love for painting life’s little moments. I have dabbled with artistry since I can’t remember when! I have always loved visiting Galleries and Art museums, just to look and study paintings and how / why they were created. I find the ability to create portraits fascinating!
I am not schooled in arts, but have self educated in the hopes to learn from anyone / anything I can.
As far as artistic challenges: I have a few, and would love to conquer them! Learning how to properly design and execute an idea and commit it to paper / canvass is what I hope for.
I would love to learn more about form correlation, colour theory and application, perspective, etc… You are never too old to add to your skills!
Old Masters Academy is, in my opinion, ideal for me. From the level of interaction I have seen, this would be an asset for learning. Being that I have a full time employment, it would be very difficult for me to attend normal classes where I am from (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada). The Old Masters Academy would be perfect for me, as I could study at my own pace.
Winning the Old Masters Academy course would help me achieve better understanding of what theories / mechanics / applications I could put toward my artistry.
Being that I am an artist, regardless of proficiency, I think the regular everyday person would like, as I would, to keep trying to improve in what they enjoy best… Being an artist and free-thinker! The regular Joe would vote for me, as I would vote for She / He to better him / herself..
