Artwork by Robert Vaessen
… Years ago I used to paint and do wood carvings, play the classical guitar and was involved with various art mediums. I love real, authentic and good art of high quality.
I never went to art school, but always have loved following different artists and their styles. Art involves my every day, it is all around us.
After the loss of our daughter and subsequent tragedies over the years, my ability and inner freedom to paint, draw and play music all seem to have become frozen.. though only recently and thankfully have begun to surface again..
… I would love to win a course with you as I am financially broke, being now on my own and also on Accident Compensation while waiting for an operation on my hand. I have never promoted myself, being a Self-Employed Tiler for the past 20 years and I rely on ‘Word-Of-Mouth’ to make my income. So as far as asking people to vote for me to win the Old Master’s Academy Course it would be on the basis of helping a poor guy hopefully finding his artistic potential and rehabilitate my life, in view of the path I have walked.
