JULIE'S GALERIA
ABOUT JULIE:
 I am 78 years old and started painting 10  years ago.  Below you can read how I got started but here I will say that this site will display many of the paintings done during  that time.
 
They are all Oil on Canvas, and come unframed. Prices include shipping.  More information is on the Services Page.
 
 My artwork begins as an inspiration from pictures friends or myself take.
 
I hope you enjoy  my site and know that I will  enjoy working with you if you see something you would like.    Julie

HOW IT ALL BEGAN
About 13 years ago my Husband, John and I were shopping in a Craft Store for a gift for his Granddaughter.  He put a tabletop artist kit in the cart.  It had oil paints, small canvases, brushes and opened up to be a table top easel.  It cost $60.  I asked why he put it in the cart and he replied "because you always said you wanted to paint."  I said I was not going to pay $60.  when I had never even opened a tube of oil paint.  So I put it back, and this scenario repeated itself several times, until I gave in.  At Checkout we discovered it was on sale for "After Christmas and Inventory Special" for $15.00.  
So I guess it was meant to be.  
 
We came home and I carefully opened and inspected the kit.  I took a favorite picture and tried to paint it.  And I did.  Neither of us, especially me, could believe it and we  shed tears of happiness.

 
Still not sure why, but I can't draw a straight line, but something happens when I hold a paintbrush.

MY CHRISTMAS PAINTINGS

For several years I have made a Holiday/Christmas painting and make  Original Christmas Cards.  I print them myself and many of my friends have framed them.  Following are these paintings.  I can make blank cards for you and/or  if you have an inscription, I can put that inside.
