I am so thankful for the wonders of the past 3 months. There have been 3 major art shows, commissions and sales and I have seen 15 paintings off to their new homes! Yes, it is humbling and very rewarding to be at this place in my art journey! I am not an ambitious person, except for the desire to make the best effort to excel in what I care about. I'm not sure how to define success as an artist aside from creating the most authentic art I can from what's inside me. Being invited to art shows, receiving recognition in awards, having art patrons buying my work...all these are so encouraging and validating and also very challenging: to keep at it, keep learning, keep growing. And I am especially thankful to all you readers and friends, who support me, encourage me, and help me feel connected with you through art. Yay!! You are all awesome!! Thank you!!
Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
