THE STORY OF LORRAINE SELWAY ART
I liked to draw and paint when I was a child. One Christmas my parents bought me a Bob Ross oil painting set with an art book. I didn't have canvas to paint on so I painted on wood, tiles, fabric, cardboard, etc. "Cuz we was poor". I took painting classes in high school and college. but chose a career in accounting. I worked for 40 years, but always thought about painting. I always knew I would return to it. I retired from my CFO position in 2017. I dug up my old Bob Ross paints and to my surprise they were still good. Now I could afford to buy canvases and new paints. I've been painting ever since. I continue to take classes to improve my skills.
I find peace in nature. My soul comes alive. I travel and paint scenes along the eastern coastal regions. I also like to play golf and paint golf course scenes which are typically beautiful. Since I started painting, I look at the world differently. I notice the tiny little details and appreciate all the wonder in God's creation. I thank God every day for the talent He gave me and the peace it brings me.
Nature brings us all closer to a peaceful place within.
Now I want to share my paintings with others. I decided to use my business skills and created a website for my art. I hope that others can find peace in art and nature. So I help by donating art supplies to local community groups. Maybe the world will be a better place if you connect with your soul through art too.
