Just wanted to say hello to everyone on the site. I'm looking forward to becoming familiar with the site, enjoying the art of others and showing some of my own. I have very wide interests in art, I'll try anything! I'm a late starter an don' want to waste any time. I am semi retired from work and now spend as much time as I can creating art.

Welcome Gloria. Your going to love it here. So many helpfull people and suggestions. I am on this site at least 2-3 times a day (between paint drying) LOL

I am also a very late starter. I found myself unemployed last year (age, 53) and after months of reorganizing my house my hubby told me to get out and do something. Long story short i did my first ANYTHING art (an oil, its in my gallery of the Indian in the field overlooking tee pees). Since then i have gone (as we say here in Indiana) hog wild. Ive tried about every medium. I love oils, acrylics but my favorite right now is pen/ink. Ive taken one class in oils and im registered for a drawing class (ooppss probably should of learned to draw first) LOL.

Take advantage of anyone in here!!! If you see a piece of art and you dont know what it is or how they did it, trust me, everyone here is more than happy to help you or direct you to a website, youtube etc. I bet you i ask a question of someone in here about every-other day.

Im a mother of two sons and a grandmother of 3 beautiful grandaughters. I still dont work (although unemployement runs out in a month or so), so out to the job force ill go again. I paint/draw/create everyday. Im a totally different person. Im more relaxed (im normally a very high strung gal), easy going and loving life.

Hello Gloria! Welcome to tac, I am sure you will love it here. Sorry for a late response I have been without Internet whilst moving house... Jeeeez... They must be the 2 most horrid things on this planet! I am looking forward to getting settled and creating again.

I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do, everyone is real friendly and so so talented!
