This is 'somewhat' of a self portrait. I do not look like this, but this painting captures the essence of me. I felt as if I was truly expressing myself as I drew it.

I have been an artist for a long time, I am the mother of 2 and the wife of a wonderful man. I work as a freelance artist and as an art instructor. I do occasional commissions and murals. I enter art exhibitions around the country. My life is full of JOY!

I also love to take old things and make them new - this drawing was done over an old painting and I made it new with the drawing. I love the colors and the energy and this piece has pointed me in a new direction for my work.

Current Residence: In my mind
Favourite genre of music: Classic Rock
Favourite photographer: Ansel Adam and Sari Sauls
Favourite style of art: Realism and Surrealism
Favourite cartoon character: Patrick (SpongeBob) and Dorry (Finding Nemo)

A new group has started its journey in DeviantArt ... The group is called :icontraditional-masters: Traditional-Masters and is a group for traditional artists who want to publicize their works and know the works of other traditional artists .. 
At the moment we are very few because it has just opened the group, but without a doubt we will grow and we will form a great community ... It would be an honor to have your presence in the group ... If you are interested, please sign up and you will be welcome...

Regards ... Hi! :icontraditional-masters:
