Profile Information

Hi everyone...

I am a follower of the Messiah, Yahshua..that is His original Hebrew name. Yahweh Is the Father and He is First in my life. Art is secondary. Yahshua is our Saviour..who died on the 'stake' for our sins. it is written in 'THE WORD'.."Every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that Yahshua the Messiah is Lord!" Why not do it now? Because later will be too late!

I was always an artist from the time I was was natural. Both of my brothers are artists and one of them is a working artist but they have equal talent. Now me? I am the one who never had any confidence in my work. So..I would do some artwork and then go years without doing anything. The fear was just too much! But since I've come to the Art Colony I've gained confidence because of the comments I've gotten. I want to thank you all.

I worked for Telepictures doing freelance; airbrushing, paste-up business forms (drawing lines by hand with Rapidigraphs), and lots of other things for videos in my late 20's. I took graphic Design at Santa Monica College, California. although I still had no confidence, I made staight A's in everything! I also took calligraphy. I worked for print shops after that doing paste up, and freelanced, then I quit! It was too much pressure. I have trouble with creativity. I'm my own worse critic..but i'm getting better.

Right at the present I've been commissioned to illustrate a series of childrens books. I'm scared to death!!! I haven't done anything like this. I'm using pastels. I'm doing it but I don't know how. lol!

Thinking CAN BE your worst enemy!

I see a lot of fine, fine artists on here saying they are not good enough and they may as well quit! When I came to this site I was feeling the same way.

Then, I got up the courage, after encouragement from friends on here to show my 'artwork.' Well was I shocked! I got comments I wasn't expecting. They told me my work was great! They encouraged me and liked it. So..I'm not so down on myself now. They really boosted my confidence. I feel so terribly sad when I see an artist who feels…

Hi Devora,

It's so very nice of you to leave that comment for me. I really appreciate it. Any encouragement that I get is welcome. Unlike you though, art has not always been in me - I never ever drew, even as a child, and never thought I could. But I was always interested in pictures and having read that anyone can learn to draw, am making an attempt too! It is not easy I have found - am able to so some things on some days way better than on other days.

I did that Pencil Sharpener drawing in just a day or two, and was pleased, it being my very first one. But in some odd way, that has prevented me from moving on to the next graphite drawing. Am getting cold feet!

Once again, thanks for your words, and I love your art. I can understand how you could draw that sneaker without erasing - your lines are SO steady!

I just came across your snowman Atc and I think it  is  wonderful! I also read your bio and know your fears, although you have a greater talent then I. I hope you find it in yourself to let go of those fears, you would not have been asked to do the children's book if they did not have the faith in your abilities. I also think your snowman would make a wonderful character for a children's books. I am a huge fan of Children's  illustration and think it's a wonderful art form! Good luck Dvora, believe in yourself, you deserve it!

Just a short hello -- your portraits and land scape are beautiful.

Hi Yahchile, your portrait of Albert Finney is've really captured his likeness!  Are you interested in feedback?  I noticed a thing or two that might make it even better.  :)

Yahchille...Yes, I would like to be friends very much. I see that you also have an eye for detail. Very nice work.  I especially like the autumn scene with the wonderful colors.  Bob
