Arbutus Moon

I have been wanting to be an artist/painter since I was a child. (Early in my childhood, I perceived that one day when I was elderly, I could see myself painting outdoors in a field.)


My first attempt at painting when I was a child was so bad, I didn't try again until I was married with children. I have more recently been inspired by the many artist in my coastal community as well as the art students at my son's high school and students at my other son's elementary school. I could be heard saying to my friends, "I want to go back to high school just so I can be in art class again." This particular painting I am sharing was inspired by the arbutus trees that only grow in my part of the world as well as an elementary school class project I saw hanging in the halls at my son's school.

I have recently been creating time lapse videos of my painting process on youtube. I am finally painting and on my way to where I want to be!
