I mainly paint from life or my own photos, but I use another copyright free resource: Paint My Photo. This is a wonderful group of photographers that offer photos for artists to paint from. Photographers from all over the world upload their photos and enjoy seeing their photos come to life. Never again will I be able to say: "I don't know what to paint." Inspiration is just a few clicks away. This painting was done for their monthly challenge and I used this photo: http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/photo/more-stairs
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
