An example of fine art by Colleen Parker

I took my first oil painting lessons in 2008, 2 years before my retirement.  My career was in medicine and my last art class had been in the 9th grade.  I was fortunate to live in a community with many supportive artists and local classes.  After retirement I moved to the Charleston, SC area and found an even more active art community.  I have been fortunate to be able to study with many talented and nationally recognized professional artists.  My true love is plein air painting which I do on a regular basis.  This has benefitted my studio work.
My subject matter varies.  I paint scenes that I feel passionate about and strive to be successful in conveying that feeling to others.  
Besides painting I am a regular blogger.  My blog is meant to help new painters or artists who have taken a long hiatus and are trying to get back to it.  I post a lot of examples, "how to's" and resource links.  
I live with my husband Scott on Kiawah Island where we hope to stay for many years.
