The Beginning...sort of

I thought that maybe I'd start with a little background post before I delve into my new projects. Then I started thinking what better place to start then seventh grade. This is a painting that I did way back then in watercolor. I've kept in touch with my middle school art teacher all these years and during my last visit home to South Carolina in May I went to visit her. She had told me over the phone that she still had this landscape that I painted and that she STILL uses it as an example. Honestly I didn't remember painting a landscape, since I presently sort of hate landscape painting, but when I finally saw it I completely remembered painting it! This art teacher was the person that doomed me to a life of wanting to create things and for this I have her to thank.

I also would like to save you now from writing me and telling me that I'm terrible at spelling and grammer. I know. Don't judge.
