Ice Skates: where it all began

Here is the painting that began it all.  Christmas 2011.  I wanted to go beyond buying gifts, so I thought I would paint someone a picture.  Chose a forgiving recipient.  Chose a theme.  Sat down for a few uninterrupted hours.  At the end of it all I stepped back and thought, “Damn… I can paint.”

I’d like to say I’ve never looked back, but the truth is, I look back every time I pick up my paint brush.  I am still not convinced that I can actually paint.  The happy news is that this gnawing feeling that this whole painting thing is a big fluke shrinks with each painting I produce.
