I am passionate about painting and drawing both still lifes and portraits. However, there is little in my art that gives me more gratification and satisfaction than creating a representation of a person--a soul on paper, canvas or computer monitor. To have their eyes looking back at me creates a feeling of fulfillment beyond words.

A similar feeling of satisfaction comes from painting still lifes I see in of my everyday life that are infused with color and light. I find joy in form, color, and light in all things around me. I see thousands of possible fascinating portraits, still lifes, photographs or paintings every day in my home, my commute, people watching and even shopping. The possibilities just never end. I could paint 24x7 and never have enough time to depict what I would love to capture.

I work in oil, Prisma pencils, charcoal and graphite, photography, mixed media, and digital. This new art form, digital, has refreshed my approach to painting and drawing. In 1995, I was involved in an automobile accident that injured my neck and this restricts my ability to paint or draw traditionally for any length of time. However, working with the computer allows my head to be up and my arm down bypassing the restriction. Now I work with mixed media as I am combining my computer generated prints on fine art paper or canvas (using Giclee printing process) then, working with that as a base, completing with Prisma or oil.

Although I am always working on or planning a portrait, I am also working on a couple of still lifes series based on a small corner of my kitchen and another in my dining room with everyday objects. I also never hesitate to take my camera for a drive as photography is also a passion of mine.

Interests
I would like to set up a group for Artists suffering with Fibromyalgia. It is hard to be creative when dealing with pain and exhaustion day in and day out. The worst part of this nasty daily experience is that your mind just keeps on plugging away with ideas for all your creative outlets but the body just can't keep up at the pace you did prior to the onset of this disease.

Are there artists here at Deviant that suffer from FM? I would like to know. I would like to ask them how they deal with this and keep from circling the drain.
