You are welcome Terry. I Grew-up in South Haven, worked in Grand Rapids and travelled a lot to Onaway, Traverse City, Mackinaw island and camped in the lower parts of the UP during the summer months. I retired in 1999 before moving to California & later in 2007 to Hawaii where I've been ever since. Thank you for your comments about my work.
I was a three time winner as the most creative artist in the west michigan competition for 1992, 93 and 94. I joined this site in February this year & this was the first showing of my work here in Hawaii.
Please note that as much as we love photography, this site focuses on hand-crafted art forms so photography is not allowed. Please also familiarize yourself with our guidelines on Digital Art. As per the Member Guidelines:
Digital art is accepted, as long as it fits the following definition: "Computer-generated art that is created by hand (i.e. using a tablet, stencil etc), either from scratch or from a reference source."
We've also put together a handy Guide to Getting Started, which may help answer any questions you may have, such as how to create a bio for your page.
Most of all have fun and join in the forums and groups! Can't wait to see your art. :)
