Artwork by Dona Alexis
I have painted my whole life whenever I could between raising my son and working. Recently, I have been able to do paint more but I still want to be able to paint daily.
I dream of painting for a living. It would be wonderful to get to a place where I can show and sell paintings in a gallery. As far as taking classes — the internet has been a wonderful tool for my advancement but more of a piecemeal approach and with no feedback. I know having a teacher who can guide my advancing to where I want to go is priceless. I am excited to find the Old Masters Academy.
What do I want to learn? Everything I don’t know!!
Artistically I want to learn glazing, classical painting like the old masters and to get faster. I do tend to be more realistic in my approach which is why I am looking into the Old Masters Academy. Where I live and my job doesn’t allow me to find any teachers nearby that I can learn from on a regular schedule.
I know I will get solid training with your Academy and winning would allow me more time to paint then working! I don’t have many years left to paint and couldn’t think of what to say to anyone so they would vote for me. I think anyone applying would want to win.
