I am a bartender by trade, but art is my passion. I started painting as a freshman in high school. I chose art as one of my electives. At the time I was not particularly interested in art, but I had an art teacher at a very special school.
I went to The Arlington School, a school where students are seen as individuals and each student’s specific talents are encouraged. Twice a week I had the opportunity to create art for two and a half hours. At first it was just relaxing. my teacher gave us a different project each week. we were given our medium, and some instruction, and then we were allowed to listen to music and create. One week she gave us paints and canvasses. I don’t remember what I painted, but I remember she liked it.
After that project the other students moved on to other projects, but my teacher continued to encourage my painting. Week after week she would bring in something for me to paint. In her class I painted windows, lamp shades, plexiglass, photo matting material, and many many canvases.
