Artist Statement
for Kirsten Mellissa
Kirsten MellissaSome ask, why do you paint? I answer, why do you eat? :)
What a fabulous life. I get to live in a world of imagination and color!
I am a self taught artist and just recently began painting after taking a ten year break. I'm a bit rusty but hoping with practice, patience, and the kindness of the Blue Fairy I'll become a real artist :)
What do you think of art classes using other peoples work for teaching, is it a good idea to see how other artist form paintings or should they try to be...
Excellent, 90% impressionist and 10% realist Other peoples work is excellent to teach skills and technique or the way the student sees the work making... view answer
