I loved oils because of the buttery gradient effects I could achieve with them though I can no longer do traditional oil painting on canvas with large brushes due to Arthritis, Dementia and Fibromyalgia issues. They also interefere with my level of productivity but nothing stops me completely for very long :)

I love watercolor and India Inks because they are quick drying and the patterns that emerge can be very creatively stimulating. Digital painting has NO fumes or brush clean-up AND I can easily achieve oil painting type effects! Dyeing or painting silk is LOTS of fun and I never know what the final art product will be until it is done!

I love the peace and serenity of nature. One of my goals as an artist is to inspire the awe I feel seeing a sunrise or sunset. When I listen to music while painting, it may be anything from country, rock n roll, instrumental harps, new age, classical or jazz to recorded sounds of nature. I am also learning to play the keyboard to make my own music :) I LOVE trees and my artwork is full of many flavors of trees .. from surreal to kind of realistic!

Painting is painting traditional or digital require technique, attention to detail, composition, perspective, experimentation and willingness to put passion into your painting.
