I've never really thought of myself as an "Artist", and after my first visit to this site, and having seen some of the many outstanding works offered here, I'm even less inclined to do so.
I consider myself a student of art. I'm self taught in disciplines including photography, painting, wood carving (ugh!) and recently digital media. My goal has been as simple as trying to be better than this time last year. (take better pictures, make better drawings, etc...) If nothing else, I think I've accomplished that at the very least. My interest are extensive... sports, cars, architecture, scenic views, plants, animals, etc... so the things you'll find here are images of things I find visually interesting.
Below are a few examples...
My works have always been purely personal, done for my own enjoyment without much thought of their appeal to anyone except myself, and honestly never really considered my photographs and "artwork" good enough to appeal to anyone else.
I'm always encouraging my children to be confident and not be afraid to take chances... not to be intimidated by what others might think.
So when I came across this site, I thought, what kind of example would I be setting to not even give it a try?
So, for better or worse, here it is. As I am a "student" of art, constructive input is not just appreciated, but encouraged. If you're a fellow member here, you have been where I am now and any advice would be very welcome.
I hope you find something you like, but if not, that's OK too.
Thank you for looking...
