My first oil painting class was in Molly's School of Art, and it changed my life. Molly, my teacher and mentor, was trained by Ritchie Cooper - one of Norman Rockwell's assistants.
When I started painting, Molly always asked me "Where is the Light Source?"
The question became my answer. I learned from Molly that art is spiritual. She taught me to consider the shadows, and notice the contrast light brings.
I've found this so helpful when life doesn't make sense. When I look for the light source in my paintings, I can better recognize the light in my life as well.
