Hi, I didn't start to paint until after I was out of school.  Call me a 'late bloomer' I guess.  I saw an exhibit of the painter Toulouse-Lautrec & after reading about him, I kind of identified with him.  I'm the runt of my litter.  At the time, I couldn't tell a Van Gogh from a Picasso, so I started to buy books on artist's lives & tried to paint like them .  I love the act of painting, the smell of the paint itself.  My  Inspirations are too numerous to list, but here are a few of my favorities:  Picasso,  Francis Bacon, Julian Schnabel,& my hairless American terrier, Nica.  Ciao!
