About Lucy Foote
This Is My Story
I began my art career early completing my first oil painting at the age of 14. I was selected to illustrate the year books for my high school, Traip Academy, in Kittery, Maine. I married my high school sweetheart, Hubert Foote, just before the war ended in 1945. I continued as a self-taught artist but later received workshop instruction from several internationally known artists. My paintings are of the realistic type.
My husband’s military career has taken me and our four children for tours in both Okinawa and England as well as many bases in the United States. While in Okinawa I taught art at the base elementary school. I have a collection of paintings that I did while stationed at the various places in our travels.
When my husband retired in Florida I took some more workshop classes and also, for a period of 16 years, began teaching at the Fort Walton Beach Senior Citizen Center and Teresa Village, a military retirement community. During this time I also entered art shows and was awarded many ribbons.
After retiring from instruction I continued with my art work, in oils and acrylics, doing commission work. In 1995 I began doing digital painting using the Fractual Painter program and now is called Corel Painter. This work is done completely freehand using a stylus pen. All digital paintings are printed on stretched canvas. Most of the oil and acrylic paintings are framed and ready for hanging. There are some that have not been framed and will be noted in the description.
I am a member and past president of the Arts and Design Society and was Manager of the DAB Digital Art Board.
I would like to personally thank you for visiting my site and offer you a chance to own the digital painting prints and oil/acrylic paintings on this site. I have unlimited numbers available for all digital paintings and there are only one each of acrylic and oil paintings. Take a look.
