About my oil paintings...

My oil paintings began four years ago. I was looking at old photos of my past New England life and began faithfully painting those Pentax scenes.

In retrospect, each photo I chose was all about light. Not so surprising as I am a certified lighting specialist and have been working in the lighting/retail for nine years.

At 72, I still have to make time to examine my domestic environment for the right light on the right object. Inspiration is all around me, I just have to make time to snag it. When it reveals itself, I take a photo that later may become the beginning of a painting.

Sometimes lovely images come into my head. I draw those directly on the canvas and they become a painting. Between my photos and my imagination, the quest is endless and keeps me on a continual journey of painting color and light from my domestic scene or my imagination.

Paintings are either wrapped canvases or framed. Frames are solid wood, simple: 1/2 inch in width by 1/2 inch in depth Frames are painted with a color that complements the painting.

Lois, I enjoyed your newsletter and get a lot out of the visual you tubes. Your help and interest in my work keeps me challenged. Janice Stratton

"I used to love doing art but then life got it the way and all of a sudden it had been 10 years since I picked up a pencil to draw or a brush to paint. I decided to make time in my life for art again, but didn't know where to start and felt so rusty. While researching online I came across Lois' website and it was the answer I was looking for! Lois' lessons are great for beginner and experienced alike, they are very professional and really are free like the website says! I have run across other websites that make this claim and then follow with hidden fees. Not only are the lessons free, but Lois will help you every step of the way just by sending her pictures of your work in progress! These lessons are a valuable asset for anyone wanting to bring art back into their life, or dip their toes in for the first time." ~ Rene Wagenaar.

I am a software developer, working at Propalms, living in India.

I decided to go for further studies in industrial designing and visual communications, thats why I searched for some drawing tutorials..and found your website.

Your website is like a treasure. Am happy reading it. This is exactly what I was looking for. I will read it and will keep you posted with my progress.

Again, Thanks a ton

Hi Lois,

To answer your questions, I live in Detroit, Michigan. I was doing alot of web browsing on the yahoo search engine looking for free art classes because right now, I cannot afford to pay to go to art school. So I was looking for free art lessons for the time being that would still provide the same kind of lessons to assist in my growth as an inexperienced artist. I came from a family of artists and the natural gift was passed down to me, however, I never took advantage of going to an art school to improve my craft. I look forward to your lessons filling that gap.

Hi Lois,

I was searching the web for ideas for me to teach K-3 students in an after school art program which meets for about 10 weeks in Spring and Fall. I have no art background but would like to teach art concepts to children to help them become independent thinkers. I've seen the results of children's artwork through a friend and loved the results. Children are not afraid to explore. I also have a deep desire to use my right brain.

I live in Honolulu.
