I was recently viewing some newer work by an old friend who is actually pretty responsible for getting me started on painting, he gave me my first one on one lesson with acrylic paint ( thanks Pete ). So anyhow I was certainly a little influenced by him and some of his techniques. One of which was some splattering he showed me that he did with his brushes. Well this lead me to try this and then to also find my own technique to use as well. So now I was flattered to see that he has now also found a liking to my style of splatter and has used it in many of his new works. I guess it felt good to be able to offer something in return for his getting me going on painting. As an artist I really enjoy working with and sharing ideas with other artist. I find it very rewarding as it helps to continually see things through different eyes and to keep pushing myself to learn and grow with my art and to hopefully inspire other artist to push themselves to always move forward as well. I am so grateful and thankful to every person that has helped me in my art career !! I truly hope I give back as much as I take in !!
