Recently, I decided to share my earlier art pieces. I share these art pieces every Thursday and call them ‘Throwback Art Thursday’ on my Facebook and Instagram accounts. I thought I would share a couple of them here with you.
This one above is called the “Mad Poet.” The original piece was created by a phenomenal Japanese artist, Katsushika Hokusai, known simply as Hokusai. (1760-1849) This drawing was from an art class that I attended back in 1991. If my memory serves me correctly, I was required to use a Japanese brush and ink.
Hokusai was the first Japanese artist to be internationally recognized. One of Hokusai’s most famous art pieces is called. “The Great Wave off Kanagawa.” It was created with ink on a woodblock print back in 1831.

I painted this lighthouse using oil paints in 2001. If I remember correctly, it was created during a one-day class at a local park district before paint-and-sip places existed. This is, for sure, a medium I’m not used to using.
