Hi, newb to the airbrush community....



Hi all!
Posted a few thing in the forum and thought I would put something here. I'm 52 this year, disabled (fighting heart disease since I was 36). Served six years in the Navy aboard the USS Kamehameha SSBN642. After that I installed home and commercial fire, burglar, and access control systems for four years. I then became a 911 Dispatcher for the city until my disability finally took hold. 19 3/4 years.

Art stuff - I have played around with just about all types of art, watercolor, acrylics, oils, charcoal. Always liked acrylic the best. I have only had art class from highschool. Other than that I have tried and errored my learning. I have a brother and mother in law that are also self taught and are wonderful in helping me learn. I really like portraits the best but will paint just about anything.

My pride and joy is an acrylic on naugahide of 2 wolves. (I saw the fur for two weeks after I was done...) It's on a spare tire cover, that's on my father's truck. I'll try to attach a couple pics. That's about it, hope to get really overboard on airbrushing as for as long as I can remember that's the form I have always wanted to do the most, but was always a little to scared to pick one up.

Cheers all!
Don't let those wells go empty!
