Hi I am Rosemary Pope I am 19 and art is a passion of mine. I mainly paint (acrylic, watercolor) but i also love to draw or sketch. The style I tend to do is realism, but abstract is always awesome. I am always up for a challenge. Recently, I have found a new love of photography. Taking pictures of landscapes, people, and flowers. I have done anything from painting on canvas, murals/ backdrops, to clothing. When I was in 4th grade my parents decided to put me in private art lessons mainly drawing. It wasn't unitl I reached high school that I picked up painting. I competed in many art competitions such as the County Fair, State Fair, and VASE. My senior year in high school I was elected president of the National Art Honor Society. That year I also took a painting called 'A Train In Sweetwater, Texas' to 'state' in the VASE competion. There I was one of 20 choosen to paint personally with artist Lemon Green from Houston, Texas. Later on that year I won grand champion at the Kaufman County Fair with a painting I like to call, 'The Senior Barn.' I sold it in the county auction for $500. Since then I have done some paintings just for fun no competing. Recently, I finished an abstract painting for my cousin.
