Today’s Featured Artist is Carol Josefiak:
I got started as an artist by taking classes at The Art League In Alexandria, VA, and taking workshops from artists whom I admire. It has been about 14 years since I started taking classes.
Since then, I have been painting almost everyday, teaching for about the last 5 years and writing my blog for quite awhile. I made the purpose of my blog to include lessons for learning to paint. There is always something to learn and putting that in writing reinforces that for me, too.
What has helped me the most is setting up a place where Ican paint everyday. Just being able to keep my easel up and have paints ready to go makes it a lot easier.
Painting from life has helped my a lot also. I have a shadow box with a light that adjusts. Thank you to my husband for making it. Joining Daily Paintworks has given an added focus on completing a small painting everyday.
Thank you Carol Josefiak!
You have some lovely artwork. 🙂
Thanks to all the readers for dropping by today.
