My interests drift around a lot. The last couple years I have gotten heavy into building and flying my own designs of epp foam rc airplanes - mostly flying wings cause I crash a lot and they are really resilient. 
So my art has suffered - I haven't done much of anything until today when I started refurbishing my painting of Shirley. The one I have posted now looks nothing like her and I got so fed up I just quit painting for a year.
So now, I think I will come back and do some more portraits.
It really stinks when my most downloaded and viewed painting is one I painted from a Chinese art book.

I paint in acrylics mostly. I am a reluctant artist in that I paint to scratch an itch all the while knowing it will not lead to any great thing. That said, I am a Christian, which gives a different meaning to my artwork - somehow I believe the effort will be eternal.
Too serious huh?
