Hey there from Shirley!

There are so many new people coming to the forum I thought I should introduce myself.
My name is Shirley Seput and I live in the San Francisco Bay area.
I stumbled across Mark's DVD lesson while browsing the internet in July of 2008. It was exactly what I was looking for so I bought it. I had begun painting in oils about 3 months prior. There is a local Art Studio that offers painting classes so I signed up for a class that met once a week for 2 hrs. I was eager for more detailed instruction and that is how I found Mark. When my DVD arrived I watched it over and over and over. I followed every detail I possibly could in setting up my work space, I got all my supplies together and the journey began... I was so excited to start painting. I did not even know there was a forum until I got the instructions in the DVD. I joined the forum and found a wonderful group of friends there.
I have had an exciting time learning to paint and can't wait to see what comes next.
I had the pleasure of meeting some of the forum members and I can assure you they are just as awesome in person as they come across in the forum. I found Mark to be down to earth and probably the most unpretentious man I ever met.
This is a wondful place to learn and I am grateful to be a part of it!
All of the paintings on my website are done using Mark's suggestions. With his help I have found my own style and will continue to grow as an artist.
Warmly, Shirley
