Latest Artist's Bio
My current painting life began at Houston Community College in Spring 2007. My job with Shell Oil had been outsourced. I knew that I needed to get more credits towards a Bachelor’s degree so I enrolled for classes. I wanted to do something other than the business courses so I signed up for Painting 101. Michael Golden, my art teacher, was so supportive. He had a way of finding the good in any piece, person, and situation. This allowed me the freedom to express myself on canvas and learn techniques. This leads up to and through the October 2008 bypass surgery. August 2009, I signed up for Painting 2 at HCC with Laura Lark. We had some moderate to severe differences of art opinion, but I learned more about techniques and criticism than I expected. And so I painted. October 2021. My 3 foot by 4 foot painting, Diversity, was selected to hang in East Montgomery County Improvement District offices at The Atrium Center. Currently, my art seems to me to be mostly abstract. My art is for sale as I make my way through my sixties with the probability of never being employed again. You can find me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/papamartiniart) and Instagram ( @papa_martini). Thank you. I enjoy meeting my collectors.
Make every moment count.
Peace and Blessings!
