I am so excited to join this forum - I have never had any formal art training. The school system I grew up in was rural, and didn't have an art program, but I have always loved art and creating. My husband and I do decorative concrete, so up until now, that has been my art medium! Obviously, concrete has it limitations, and so one day a couple of years ago (on a whim), I went to a class at my local Hobby Lobby (it was a Bob Ross style class). I was hooked, now I love to paint, and have struggled to find exactly where I fit in, and the style of painting that works for me, until now. So eager to continue learning from Mark's wisdom, and from you all too!
