LouAnn (Weezie) Ordile's Profile

About

My name is LouAnn, my family calls me Weezie. My passion is painting, therefor, it was only natural to name my Etsy shop PaintinWeezie. I am from the South Jersey /Philadelphia area, born and raised. I live with my wonderfully supportive husband, two amazing daughters and two adorable little fur faced, fuzzy bumpered doggies. I realize that I am truly blessed.
I don't want to live where there is no Wawa. I am a devoted Phillies Phan, REGARDLESS!
I love to paint. I love to laugh. I love to watch and speak with other artists.
New projects always excite me.
I am self taught in both the art of hand painting and airbrushing, (with the aid of a class or DVD here and there) which is probably why it has been over thirty years and I am still learning. Slow learner I guess. Slow painter too, mostly because I just really enjoy the ride! However, I am very quick…

Slow learner I guess. Slow painter too, mostly because I just really enjoy the ride! However, I am very quick witted and my sense of humor confuses some people and has been known to get me into hot water.
My favorite medium is acrylic paint. I dabble in other art forms as well, such as sculpture, watercolor, colored pencil, stained glass, and mosaics but never oil, I can't deal with the issues and smells that come along with oil paints. I also can't stand to touch charcoals and pastels (it's a feely thing).
My style is fun, colorful, somewhat humorous and eclectic. My creative juices flow around and around in a constant swirl of ideas, often reminding me of a toilet because if I don't capture them they are whisked away, nearly impossible to retrieve. I must admit, that for some of my brainstorms that is a good thing. I don't enjoy painting the same thing more than once or twice. I often will build a little story about what I'm painting to make it more fun and interesting, almost the way a writer would and it brings my work to life, if only for me.
My surface preference is anything that will hold still long enough, from wooden furniture or wooden anything to kayaks, spare tire covers to tshirts, canvas, walls and windows.
My mantra is; I can't call a piece finished until it makes me smile! My belief truly is that the devil is in the details. Finally, the words that I usually live by are: "The hurrier I go the behinder I get" and "Creative minds are seldom tidy".
Have a fun day and don't worry about the dust bunnies they'll never hurt you.
