My name is Perry Homes, I am an oil painter from Arizona. I have been painting for four years and I have been making a humble living from my works for three years. My grandmother sent me all of her oil painting supplies because her hands begun to hurt to much. My first painting was nice, then the next, then the next. After a while I looked at things differently and turned off the destructive drug laden path I was on. Oil painting really did save my life.
