My First Post!

I am a lurker - not out there connecting with people.  But this is my day to go public - I am a self-taught mixed media artist - actually a professional finger painter!  I often forget to use a brush.  Anyway - I've been very nervous about doing this - but here I am.  Will post more pictures of things I've done - but picture above is actually a piece that was chosen for a month long display in my new hometown of Beaufort, SC.  It was collaged, painted, drawn on a spare block of wood.  I do love the texture and the raised image of the little girl.  Anyway - here I am out there actually calling myself an artist.  In the past when anyone asks me what I make - I usually said "messes".  (my FROG studio is certainly one).  That's it for now. Will post more pictures later.

  1. Me too! I'm also just starting to get my work "out there." I'm mostly self-taught as well. Love the texture and color on the above piece. Adding this blog to my blog roll for some inspiration.
