How I Met a Mentor

I had been researching local artists in Washington, DC when I saw her name: Nihal Kececi.  It was a Turkish name, which was what caught my attention.  I found her on Facebook and sent her a message.  She replied quickly, which was a pleasant surprise.  Then she invited me to a reception she was having in Alexandria, and I decided to meet her.
It was very fun to work with her.

I enjoyed the work so much, I didn't even realize how quickly the time went.

Her style is great – her colors are brilliant and her images take me to places in my dreams.  Especially her figure paintings, which amaze me.  After meeting her, we kept talking online and I had a chance to help her in a studio she was renting.  Now she is going to teach me how to stretch canvases and make frames… and hopefully painting as well :):)
I’ve never met an artist like her.  She’s always happy and very friendly.  She has a big smile.  :):)

Here are some my favorite of hers

 If you are wondering about her art, you can find her on Google, Nihal Kececi.
Or find her on facebook, she'll answer you.
