From Chicago. Self taught. Love painting.I had never ever painted anything in my entire life except for may be housewalls. I started painting a little over a year and a half ago. My girlfriend,an accomplished painter herself had this entire studio like setup. Just out of curiosity I picked up some chop sticks and knife and blades etc (as I was too patrified to use her expensive brushes) and started layering paint on paper. As simple as that. I enjoy it immensely. Most of my acrylics are done this way, non-brush method. Now I have got into watercolours and am kind of feeling forced into having to use brushes. We will see what happens next. As long as the Joy doesn’t stop I will keep doing it, just like my other passion music.
