I have decades of semi-skilled photography behind me, but am fairly new to painting, taking my first steps at the end of April/2020. Painting always felt daunting and scary. A photograph only takes a fraction of a second to take, and reality is faithfully copied. Painting, not so much.
A combination of COVID stay-at-home strictures, and some stay-at-home recovery from surgery, meant I had the free time to concentrate on my new endeavor.
As you might expect, my recent subject matter has centered around home items, mostly food.
