My Early Art

These are listed in order from more recently finished works to the earliest ones.  I am self-taught and figured out some of my techniques myself.  Other techniques I learned by watching professional artists' videos, reading books, and researching fine arts painting on line.

I painted this to put in the window of my office at work so that it would block the sunlight from glaring on my computer monitor. The painting wasn't big enough to do that, so I took the painting home again. The next day, a coworker asked what I was going to do with it and then asked to buy it from me. So I sold it to him.
