I am back to art after a 40 year hiatus. I learned how to draw from copying pictures in magazines. I tend to do better that way, I can't see the perspective by looking straight question…READ MORE

Hi Betty,  What you do is follow the directions at the beginning of the thread. In this instance the theme was "Aboriginal Dot Painting". (There are some links to videos if your not familiar with that style of art). All swaps have a quantiry (like a one for one trade or two for two trade) meaning if it's a two for two trade you make two art pieces and would send to who ever you are pared up with and in turn two people would be sending thiers to you. There is a due date so you would want to make sure you complete your art work based on the theme and get mailed by that due date. Instructions and requirements very by each host for their swap. In this case once your done with your artwork you send it to me as I was your swap partner. You should have received the one I sent to you. I mailed it on May 3rd and it hasn't been returned by the postal service. My address is posted in the thread where I signed up for the swap but if you need it you can just let me know and I will provide it to you. 

Hope this helps with understanding how the swaps work.

Thanks Lori

Hi Betty, sorry i didn't see you in the chatroom on time, i was too occupied with my cat and some knitting. I have to test some pattens for a few designers and because i am behind do two/three things together.

I just took a look at your small but lovely gallery, i just love your drawings especially the cute red hat is my favourite. Hope to see more of your art. Have a nice day.

My first blog - Ever

I wanted to have as my first blog how I got back into my art and to show my first piece. When I posted the painting I added this :

By chance I met an artist in a doctor's office and mentioned that I "Used to paint a long time ago. He said something to me that haunted me and got me started back into my art. He said,"Get a piece of paper, a board, a wall, ANYTHING and slap some paint on it, then go to town!"

One day I did it! I found an old used canvas at a second hand store that…
