My name is Raynette Mitchell and I paint mainly in oils on canvas but occasionally I use acrylic paint and or pastels, and sometimes I use a bit of everything. I love experimenting with various methods and applications and am happy painting any subject from landscapes to portraits to still lifes to the human form.
I've been painting for about 15 years. It started as a hobby - something to do in my leisure time when I retired - but it didn't take long to virtually take over my life. I love reading about it, talking about it, thinking about it and yes, even dreaming about it. Art is such an interesting subject, you can learn something new about it every day.
Unfortunately, the frustration level can be quite high, but is completely dissipated by the ultimate stimulation and enjoyment which a well-rendered painting can bring.
I hope you enjoy looking at my paintings as much as I enjoyed painting them.
