i am 46 years young and i am just on my beginning. started painting half a year ago (aug. 2013) and growed to like it. currently i practice acrylics but in future i wanna try oil technique. i almost do it myself with little help watching some video-shows on youtube. i am sooo glad not to have to "study painting" and have to do what someone else want me to. i just do what i want at that time i wonna do it and as long as i am interested in it. this is the most luxury i can ever imagine!
i hope to make progress maybe one day to be able to paint surrealism like my most adorable artist - salvador dali. maybe this will never happen but one can always try
