From Chicago. Self taught. Love and enjoy painting. I mostly use chop sticks and knife and blades etc to layer paint on paper. As simple as that.. Most of my acrylics are done this way, non-brush method. Recently I 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.
