New Adventure - University of West Georgia Art School

"Starr's Mill - 9x12 - Pastel - 2014
Glad to say this painting now has a new home!!
Just got accepted to the University of West Georgia.    I started college in 1965 when it was West Georgia College.   After a year, I married and had two children and life just happened.   Later after getting a bachelor and master's degree from Georgia State University and a 30 year career, I retired.    I took up painting as a hobby.   One of the things I've loved about retirement is the limitless possibilities that are available.   I started taking art classes and workshops and now have completed over 250 hours.   I've been considering going back to school to study art.    I've taken art classes from lots of great teachers of the last 5 years, but decided I needed a focused and systematic approach.   I start in the fall and will see what this new experience brings.
