Was it fate or meant to be? Who knows? But a decision to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Georgia plowed me into a variety of art classes, including painting and drawing among others. I discovered at that point a wonderful new obsession. So, as I worked over the years in corporate America, I dabbled in oil painting on the side. Raising a family was priority; however, now that they are indeed “raised”, I can once again enjoy the fragrances of mineral spirits, turpentine, oils and pastels on a more regular basis. I most recently decided to begin classes again through the assistance of Rick Rennick, local professional artist and friend. Thank you, Rick for an increasing knowledge of color, depth and a different take on mastering the canvas!
