In 2008 my husband gave me a set of oil paints for Christmas. I took a painting class at a local college in which they required us to paint a photograph of our choosing. I had taken a photograph of the local Ruby Mountains and set myself to the task of painting it. When I had finished, I stood amazed at how it looked like the photograph. I entered that painting, God's Country (pictured below), in the local County Fair. It took second place but I received several calls inquiring if they could purchase the painting! So I started painting for profit!
I named my art business Designed by God, Painted by Genny because of that first painting. I know many artists create beautiful paintings from their imagination, but I paint what I see. Things that are Designed by God that I just happen to paint!
Genny Albitre has created fine art in Elko, Nevada for over 5 years. Look for her work in various local businesses, during the annual Cowboy Poetry art show, and the annual Art in the Park.
