Douglas RileyI started painting again after a cruise in 2007 as a way to relax. I mainly used acrylic and would try oil and water colors. About two years ago, I started to use soft pastels. After 41 years of not taking any art classes, I enrolled in a class with one of my favorite pastel artist. I love the quote from Kurt Vonnegut, Jr “The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake.”
