What is your interest in contemporary art?

I've had a burning desire to be an artist for as long as I can remember. But was never "allowed" to take any art classes in school and was shunned from following that dream. But you can't change who you are and I've always been attracted to modern art and wished I could do it. Well, I now have a wife and family that "gets it". So for about ten years I've been dabbling and experimenting, only to find that there is some levity to my dreams. I can paint. Sometimes I get lucky and just knock one out in a day. Other times I struggle and never finish after years. My only training was a trip to Europe where I was able to visit many museums and see some of the greats in person. I would love to get some constructive criticism and try to actually sell some work.


I'm an amateur artist with no formal training. I paint with acrilycs.
