Hello Cheekyjane,

thanks for your message. propably it seems that I am not so active as I could be :-) 

In learning watercolor painting (I do that since 1 year) I am really busy practising almost every day. It is almost too much to post and unintentionally danger of flooding
with lots of pics :-)

maybe you can help me with a little advice where and how to publish artwork in the
right sections. I see that this portal has a different stucture than others and I like to do things polite and corect :-)

the following links are examples of my effort to learn painting of snow and winter-scenes I with instuction and inspiration of G.Kersey and T.Harrison :-) I did about within  the last three weeks

Jane, thanks so much for your lovely welcoming message!  I already feel a part of the group, before even having posted my art work!  I am so excited to be involved with this group.  I think that perhaps I can speak to more specifics, in my bio. I know that I will be 'a regular' on here and I look forward to learning, being inspired and contributing to this wonderful artistic community,  that you worked to start.  I truly appreciate your efforts in creating this vibrant group!  Thanks again!

Thank you very much for your comments and likes on my recent posts. I'm  so pleased that you decide to keep the site going. Although I haven't  had the complete block that you've had  I kept chatting to Nelson while he struggled with his block. I know although  he wanted to come on site to see people it depressed him at the same time because he couldnt  draw himself.    I'm not able to do much acylic painting at the moment for some reason so I'm  keeping going on mainly on  my scribbles and splats for now

Hi CheekyJane, 

here is the challenge:

Hi my friends, it sure has been a long while since I have done anything here in this group. But rather late than never... I hope you are all still around...

Lets have some digital fun.. No need to be a professional, I sure am not but what I thought we can do for the rest of April is paint digital birds. They must be free hand and do not have to be realistic.

The reason why I am choosing birds is a little story that you may or may not have heard about.

In 1943, a little girl called Dorie Cooper 7 years old at the time, went to visit her uncle in hospital, he had been wounded in war and had to have his leg amputated. So as you can imagine, he was down and feeling very blue.

So to try and cheer him up, for even a short time, asked him to draw her a bird. Because he did not want to dissapoint her, he agreed and looking outside the window saw a robin which he went about drawing.

Dorie laughed and told him that he is definitely no artist, but she promised she would put his painting up on the wall. He loved her direct honesty and laughed.

Nw this one simple even started that whole ward of wounded soldiers to start painting and drawing birds, and they were not perfect by no means, but they would hold competitions and within a short time, all the walls of the wards were covered in bird drawings.

Three years later, Dorie Cooper was killed in an accident. Soo on her birthday 8th April, that hospital and lots of other places around the world have Draw a Bird Day in her memory and for the soldiers wounded in wars.

So we have missed the 8th of April, but I would like us to draw birds till the end of April for all those wounded in wars no matter who they are and where they were wounded....and to say a little prayer for Dorie, one special little girl that even for a few moments, put smiles on soldiers hearts.

So in your own style and a little story to go with your choice..lets have fun.

I will even give you a few pics for inspiration
