Welcome to For the Love of Painting…a blog about everything painting ( because that’s what I love! ) A bit about my journey…I started For the Love of Painting as a website and blog in 2009. I have kept it as a website the whole time, but have gone on a few adventures all while still painting. I ran a blog from about 2009-2012. I loved blogging, but I also wanted a family. I had three girls and life got busy. While staying home with my girls, I started a mobile paint party business in Reno, Nevada. It really took off, became very successful and is still something I am doing today. I love the paint party business, but I felt that it was time for me to start talking about my painting again. I really never stop painting, I truly do love it and painting is a huge part of my life!When did I start painting…I started drawing and painting as a young girl, but my first big painting project was done on my childhood dresser when I was 16 years old. I knew how to paint, but I had never actually refinished anything before! Since then, I have been painting all kinds of things.What is my goal with blogging? Almost all artists want to show off their work. Not only do I like seeing my own work, but I love seeing other people’s work too. This is a way for me to show off my projects, but I would love to show off other people’s projects too…because it’s fun and why not!
