I am a mother, a grandmother and a contemporary realist painter currently living in Montana. I was encouraged to be an artist when I was younger due to some sad events in my life. Through this experience I started to learn and understand how much of an impact being an artist and the art world in general could have on a person if given a chance. Later, I wanted to be a seascape painter and went to school where I received my Associates in Fine Art/Humanities (2007) and have been able to continue my artistic education through books, the internet and personal experiences. Today I do not just paint the ocean but I paint anything that inspires me. Through my artwork, I want to encourage happy thoughts, happy memories and positive perspectives in order to stimulate a happy heart within my viewer whether it be from a nature scene to something as simple as a favorite coffee cup. - Frankie Stockman 2021Please continue down for more information, interviews with artists and some painting tutorial and ideas! ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Great weekend. :)
I went to paintings I love this weekend on the internet and was going to update my profile. It turns out they erased everything that I have had on there as if I had not even put anything in there. So I had to redo some things. I just added about 4 things. I am not going to add it all. I will just add what I am working on recently. I am also going to take one of the challenges again. I started the sketch today. A basket and lace. Geeshhh.. I have painted lace before so let me see if I can paint it again. I also made my aunt Heather a hat. I promised her I would last winter and she happened to remind me when she called me to wish me a happy birthday! Its actually really cute the way it turned out. Well anyways I am going to get off and work on the new painting. I am putting it on canvas paper and it seams that Strathmore has changed their way of making the paper. It is no longer stiff. Its actually really loose. I do not really like it. Its for practice purpose so it will be alright. Okay! Talk to you all later.... This post is kind of a bore.. Sorry.. ;) TALK TO YOU SOON!
