SHOW & TELL
I started painting in 1989 after having suffered of a deep depression. The doctors told me that I absolutely had to find a hobby of something I really like to do. I couldn't find anything which was of interest to me. I considered all kind of things and hobbies what other people did, but nothing draw my attention. Finally I remembered that I loved to paint before I married. I digged in old folders and thought I could give it a new try. So I went to private drawing and painting lessons and suddenly my world changed. I found happiness in painting.
After 3 years in this private school, I decided that it would be time for a change and started with Art School in 1992. There I remained until 2000, not because I was too stupid to get a diploma earlier, but I didn't want or need one, I just wanted to stay in that school. So I did everything to double classes by not attending Art history courses or being late with my work submissions. It worked until I myself got fat up of this school and found a nice painting group here in my hometown Waterloo, organized by the city and I am still going there every thursday morning til today.
Here are some paintings I did in the 90th :
