|Tomando Vuelo, 16 x 20 inches, acrylics on canvas, circa 2004|
by Angeline Marie Martinez
Tomando Vuelo (Taking Flight) was one of my most realistic paintings done in 2004. I was on the verge of being bored with painting...it had been four years of struggling to find decent instructors, hours that fit around my day jobs, and explaining why I wanted to paint. Add a dash of tedious paintings by trying to be hyper-realistic, and well...
I paint for the joy and the challenge and the messes created.
The whole time I felt I was juuuuuust about to take off and fly during those years. It took me a bit longer, but I finally did find a different painting instructor...but you'll have to wait for my next story.
Is there something YOU want to do that seems tough to explain to other people? What if you did it anyway?
Me? I figured I would open my art studio and show you what I've been doing outside my day jobs all this time. LOL
To learn why I chose this painting, hope over to my YouTube Channel by clicking on this sentence if the link below doesn't work for you (with a dash of please and thank you, lol).
