Painting is a very rewarding and versatile skill which can be mastered by anyone who’s determined to paint. I am in no way an expert in the field of fine art. As a medic I appreciate that I am a big stranger in this field but yet again I believe art is medicine and medicine is art. Still waiting for someone who can prove me wrong on that!
I have a passion for the arts and painting in particular. This has been the main motivating force in my life as an artist and painter. I have discovered that the more I paint, the better I get; and I know this can apply to anyone else.
Spending time with my brush and canvas is not something that happens all the time. But when the opportunity presents itself, I am always determined to make the best out of it. I have never had a regular Art studio...O well except for the room I in when the picture was taken. It was the living room of the house I was staying in while carrying out the compulsory one year service to my nation, Nigeria.
The minute I walked into the house I knew exactly what I was going to do do with the room. That goes to prove that artistsare always planning and trying to figure out where and how their canvas and brushes would fit in anywhere they go.
Aside from that period, I never had a regular Art Studio. Even as I write this, I use a corner of my living room to paint. I am kind of used to using corners. Some artists paint on their kitchen table others simply make out a space anywhere they find themselves. I've heard some people say that not having a regular studio makes an artist look unserious. O well, I simply do not agree (not because I am one of them!!!!........but because it's the determination that matters). What do you think?
How time flies and how I thoroughly enjoyed having a space I could call an Art Studio. Looking forward to the time I would have a permanent Art Studio.
I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God's help I shall succeed.
I painted it while listening to Bach's 'where sheep may safely graze'...a classical piece that takes me to an open field in the middle of nowhere where the sounds I hear are the gentle murmurings of my sheep and the singing of birds!!!!Read More
