Sorry, I've been absent for awhile, still fighting this blasted cancer. The Chemo drugs cause hand tremors which greatly hampers my painting.

Nice work . It's good to hear from you and I do hope that the chemo is working for you.  There are very few people posting  and commenting now compared  to a couple of years ago

I've noticed that, Paul.  There are so many Art groups on FaceBook now. It's a shame. The atmosphere here is so much more friendly and encouraging. :(

...or at least that's the way it used to be. I notice that not even the mods are liking or commenting much lately. :(

Almost all are in facebook selling groups. Harry was one who left  regular comments  but copd got him in the end ,

it is sad  that most have left. I've  had so much help and encouragement  since i started art and joined the group 4 years ago. And there's not any group  left like tac I have looked at Orange art but the same has happened there.

I know there are a few people  who are still looking in  but for various reasons  find it difficult  to comment or post  so i keep coming back for them

Hey Steven, so nice to see your artwork, and hope you recovered well. Same as Paul, I like here. It indeed seems have less active members, it is a sad thing since I like here a lot.
