Connie Powell artist
Hi my name is Connie Powell. Painting is my Passion. Sharing it with you is my Joy.
BLUE IS MY FAVORITE COLOR. I'm sure that 99% of my paintings have blue in them.
So, how did I become an Artist? To be honest, I am still working on it every day. When I'm not able to paint (at work, doing chores, nagging my husband or walking the dog, etc. etc.) I am thinking about it or looking at it. If a technique or a style interests me I research it and try to figure out how to recreate it my way. I've been in art groups and taken on line classes but self study has been a big part of my education as an artist. I love all different art forms and styles. Painting, sculpting and sewing just to name a few. I'm fascinated by abstract art but partial to folk art as well. All of it has beauty and meaning to me.
About 20 years ago I was very much into the fiber arts. Art quilting and Art Dolls. I still love fiber but my TRUE LOVE is painting.
I display and sell my work at local Art Fairs and Galleries. I love talking to people about my art or art in general.
MY DREAM is to be able to offer online classes! To share what I know and love with like minded people. To create a community where we can all learn and grow together.
My favorite subjects to paint are women and animals. I love to incorporate texture, dimemsion and color into my work. I'm curious about so many things and would love to paint them all.
