Loved to draw as a little boy and then life took over so I stopped. Decided to start painting almost 40 years later. Not sure what inspired me but here I am and really starting to enjoy the show. I have taken painting lessons and classes ending up with mostly traditional acrylic as my medium of choice. The more I paint the more I realize how little I know and that is the beauty that this could become a lifelong hobby/ obsession.

To improve Im geared toward learning from professional artists in my area and lately would like to think im tending toward an impressionist style to composition likely because I loose intrest in a single work after the 3 hours mark. The work of mne that gets completed within an hour and a half appeals to me most. Lets not forget that it is you that must be satisfied with your work first and foremost. Obviously the support and encouragment of others becomes a great source of inspiration too.

Areas to target for improvement - you tell me. I often post material that has not been completed and probably wont be for some time as my desire to start a new work moves me down another creative endeavor. So if you see one of my posts with 'in progress' it means that I'm almost there in my brain. Others that may not look complete are good enough for me to say "thats enough of that" composition.

Im truly inspired by many other artists out there whether because of the true beauty of something you produce, the creativity shown, or the dialogue which spports your work and /or all of the above. Im just starting to do commissions and hopefully someday I will be able to produce an income which supports my caffeine addiction. Thats the only really bad joke I will tell you hopefully.

Im hopeful that the majority of all my future work will 'plein air' style but in the meantime I will settle for a combination of that and original photo for composition to get it over the line. If you other deviants ever have a question about anything I have shown dont ever hesitate to ask. I have enjoyed your support and comments thus far even when they are not positive. Thanks for reading. D I can alos be found on Instagram - dennisdoherty8226
