on becoming an artist
Who is to say who is or isn't an artist. For me, the desire to create is an overwhelming drive. It pushes me to draw, paint or create in some fashion, or even read books on artists; watch YouTube videos on art or visit local galleries.
Some artists are recognizable by their subject matter (ocean scenes) and some by the color palettes they pick.
I paint thematically. An idea will ferment in my mind. I will start sketching it out, then painting it. I painted My Blue Heart, Who Has The Key for my Raw Artist Show. "Livres" which translates to "books" from French to English, was for a show I did in the City of the World Gallery. I am working on "The Tutu" for a show at the City of the World Gallery from October 15, 2020 through November 15, 2020.
I love to be immersed in art - either mine or someone elses. My home is filled with art by local artists, many of whom I know.
I hope that you enjoy viewing my website. Let me know if you would like to buy my art.
Take care, Gayle
