I have been taking courses in the MFA to practice drawing from the paintings and objects. I studied at the Tringale Studio in Woburn with Vincent and Jo Tringale (drawing, pastels, oil and watercolor). And also at Bunker Hill Community College (Fine Art and Graphic Design)
I love to create art, it just seems natural to me. Drawing on the subway or painting at my local pond with the wildlife wandering in and around my landscapes (and in and around my chair when I open my snack bag) is a wonderful way to combine my love of painting and love of being around nature.
I try to create realism in my paintings with light and shadows and also convey the mood of the scene I’m painting.
