"I started painting in 2001 when my children were away at college. While I was raising my family, I had always imagined myself painting some day, but didn't know where to start. I found a local art instructor who taught the 'Rob Boss' painting technique and enjoyed painting landscapes for awhile. But when I started painting with Mary a few years ago, it became a passion, rather than just a pastime, as I have found that paintings with people in them, while very challenging, has proven to be so much more rewarding for me when I am able to capture the essence of the person or child I am painting ."
