Oil Paintings by Michael Thomas
I have been drawing seriously since I was three years old, and have been engrossed in art all my life.
I have had my drawings win awards and go on tour during my high school years in Canada. I started painting in my early twenties, and have continued to do so on and off for the past thirty years.
I have tried multiple styles, but find myself drawn to the style of the old masters and find it to be my most promising style and love. I know I have the talent, but find myself stuck at my current level, and want to break through to the finers aspects.
I beleive the Old Masters Academy can provide this. I have had no formal training and would love the opportunity to explore this avenue.
I consider myself to be the classic hermit/starving artist. I have no social media contact and spend a lot of my time caring for my wife, who is a cancer survivor with multiple health issues.
This being the case, I have no hope in affording any formal training, which is why I feel this the best chance of acheiving proper training.
I hope people will see my potential and vote for me.
Thank you,and God Bless
