October 22, 2004

I simply LOVE your paintings!!! I wish I could do them myself!!
I have joined painting classes here is Edinburgh Scotland, though.
I am an analyst by profession but simply love paintings.
Do you have any tips you can give me... I love acrylics and oil...

Dear Sadaf, Thank you for visiting my work!
And I am so glad you "connected" with what I do!
As for tips...many of the images have tips, and ideas,
sharing those things for the artists that visit those pieces.

The main thing is to be loyal to yourself,
and not "chase after" other people's interpretations,
cause when you do, you will only be second class.

And each of us has a great gift to give to the world...
but it has to be from our own hearts and souls!
Just be true to yourself!
No matter what the market demands!

A friend of mine is teaching in Scotland almost every year...
Jill does watercolors...and is quite the artist! Hope that helps! Take care!! Betty

Keeping with the spirit of things
the following is also shared with you!

Also, I never list another artist's web site, but I am making an exception!


should be the basis of painting from your soul
(which has always been my philosophy,
more important than any sales, or any approval!)
...and to understand this, a friend of mine, Tom Clements,
has shared a great deal from his "soul"...
if you care to read some of his thoughts on the soul of painting,
please visit his web site:
