Painting is a result of the immediate emotion. The topics are people, the environment and events of the day. The preferred technique is painting with acrylics. As a 4 year old I began to draw and paint with my left hand and was later retrained in school. But some of my later paintings again were painted with my left hand – some even with both hands.
