Hello,

My name is George Venecia and I am seeking friends who enjoy art.  I began drawing almost immediately after my imprisonment.  I thought that my art was nice until an acquaintance said, “Man, that’s an ugly whale”, but I drew a dolphin.  Got a lot of laughter from that drawing, even from me.  It was mentioned that I should give up drawing and learn to play the guitar.  I did not.  Instead, I made it my goal to be a portrait artist.  Soon I learned to draw portraits and now friends and family who have received them are very happen, even excited with the results.  The most memorable praise came from a grandmother who said what I did was wonderful.  To hear that from another man’s family made me feel proud.

Soon after, I decided to challenge myself to draw everything I thought could be difficult.  I feel that lettering was a weak point in my work but with practice that to became less difficult and more fun.  My next challenge would be to learn how to paint murals.  I had the opportunity to help with facilitating an art program.  I donated 19 drawings and have been told they all sold and the proceeds went to our painting classes. 

For a while I taught what I learned about painting and again felt the need for a new challenge.  I wrote to our medical department and asked if I could donate art to the hospice patients.  In lieu of donated art I was asked to paint a mural in their TV rooms.  Upon completion, and good review,s the lobby area and 4 other walls, as well as 2 offices, received my murals.  Sometime during these paintings I was asked to paint a mural in the new breakroom for our correction officers. 

The photos on my profile that I submitted are:  Aaconcrete pillar which I painted an ocean scene; my uncles 1970 Monte Carlo; an Alaskan Family Totem; and a day of the dead mask. 

I don’t like to pigeonhole my art and am looking off like-minded fellow artist and art enthusiasts to share information, critique my work, give me advice on how to improve my work, as well as improve myself.

Thank you for visiting my profile.   Please use one of the options below to contact me.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,

George
