Back to me Roots

My wife wanted to paint the other weekend. And as such, I was convinced to also paint.
She had never touched oil paint before, but when it comes to fine art, the woman qualifies as a savant.
Remarkable starting skill level with zero training or experience.

Her piece is the rather completed one on top. Remarkable mountains for one who has never picked up a brush.
Mine is the rather abandoned looking one on the bottom. Years of training and practice (granted many years rusty) thousands of dollars spent on schooling, and quite honestly, her level of skill (at least on those mountains) is about equal to mine.

I love that girl so much. Such a beautiful genius.

I dabble … as I do with so many things. I don’t go to paint and sip events … but that’s how I paint lmao :smiley:

I love to see real paintings by folks. Both are eye catching :slight_smile:

Wow! If this is her first painting, I think it’s fair to say there is such a thing as inherent, natural ability. She really ought pursue this further. It’s a shame to waste a talent.

Nice work indeed!

You have no idea J-B. Let me find some of her portrait work. She does color pencil work.
Her first ever portrait blew mine out of the water - after years of study and practice.

He first rendering is borderline professional/master level.
Ive never seen such innate talent in my life.
