Hello to all! Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Deborah and I live in beautiful Durango, Colorado. I retired as a graphic designer and have since been working on my retirement goal of creating my own artwork. I went back to college and am majoring in Studio Art at Fort Lewis College here in Durango. I have taken two semesters of painting and am registered to take my third semester this fall. Frankly, I have learned more about oil painting from watching Mark Carder's videos than I learned in the two semesters at college! That said, I am looking forward to this coming semester of painting and implementing Mark's methods in my work flow.
I am glad to have found this forum and hope to meet others in love with oil painting and other arts!
