Hello my friends. I haven't been on here for a while, but I was working on my things. Have to check the side and get updated of what is going on. :-)
A compliment to the people who are working so hard on this side :-). It is still my favorite place. I joined a german forum, which of course is very useful for me on the practical side and I get good tips from it.
But I love the art colony because there is such a variety of artists and beautiful paintings. And nice people. The german site is more conservative in the art, maybe it has something to do with it, that here we are people from all over the world with different cultural…READ MORE

I think people are right when they say drawing is…READ MORE
Right now I am trying to learn some different techniques instead of just going ahead. It is frustrating sometimes because it never comes out as I want it but I keep thinking it will be for my benefit. I think am getting a little ambitious now that I realize I may have some potential. And I am curious about all the possibilities. So I just keep going and wait for my next masterpiece :-). But it is not as easy as I thought. I hope on the way I will find my own style.
