Hello Everyone! Here I go! I have been sitting on the idea of doing a blog for a while now but I had every excuse possible to wait. I needed a plan, I needed the perfect photo, I needed ideas on what to post, I needed… I sat and wrote what I wanted to write about, my first words were… I’m Scared… then I wrote… Just Do It… SO here I am just doing it. Hi! I am Janine Adamo, really Janine Lancour but soon I will be Janine Adamo, I am a Newly Unwed person, I will be/am a single mom of 2 beautiful girls ages 7 and 9 and I am an artist. I went to SCAD and graduated in 96, I originally went for Illustration and changed my major to graphic design at the last min so I could be more stable. I have been doing graphic design for the past 18 years now. What got me to start painting again you ask… depression is my answer. Yes, I went into a deep depression a few years ago and I decided to start painting, what an idea, once I started I couldn’t stop! Then about a year later I took a painting e-course by the amazing Flora Bowley and I have not been the same ever since. I took her course September 2013, almost a year later here I am writing a blog about my life and art. That is why I am here, to write about my art, show my progress, talk about my experiences and challenges with being a single mom and having a career in art. I do my best with finding freelance deign work during the day and painting at night when my babies are sleeping. At the moment I do art festivals and I am trying my hardest to get into galleries. Which I am finding out is not easy. Not at all! I am thinking this is a good spot to end for today. Thank you for stopping by!
