Marcy Brennan, Fort Pierce, FL Member Since December 2011 Artist Statement I'm a self-taught artist for the most part. I've been painting all my adult life. With some classes here and there, I've learned to paint in oils, acrylics, and watercolors, but my preference is oils. I love the smell of oils, mediums and turp. There's just something about walking into my art studio or a class where oils are being used and breathing in those fumes that makes me want to create!
Right now I'm taking an on-going class called Intuitive Oils that is helping me to free my painting style which is very representational. I've completed several abstract works that have helped free my mind of what something "should" look like and just played with form and color - very freeing.
Whatever I am doing, I do as unto the Lord. My Christian faith is what gives guidance and meaning to my life and to my art. I believe God gave me a passion and talent for art and I joyfully work at honing that talent with each new painting.
