Thank you for looking through my gallery. Even though now I see some flaws, I was proud of this work too. At that time I could not believe I did it when I finished it :giggle: Thank you for your kind support during the whole 2007, Judylee. You're a pal :glomp: :hug:

It was fun! Everyonce in a while I like to go back and go through friends galleries to see what might strike me! Problem is one gets so many"friends" that it gets kind of hard to do, and have time for anything else:giggle: This year no matter what I am planning to carve out the time for me to paint, I haven't really done much in the last six months and what I have done isn't showable:rofl: This is a New Year :w00t: Thanks for all your support and friendship in the past year also my friend, it means a lot to me:glomp: Heres to many more years!

Do you think you've high standard, that's why you discarded the "unshowables"? I show everything because of the time spent on them :giggle: I like to browse galleries too, but I've got a typing problem. I just cannot learn how to type. For I easily get...:bored: when trying to practice with ten fingers. As a result, I'm stuck with long hours just to...answer comments:( My husband has tried to tell me time and time again, to prioritize and I hope this year's resolution will work for me :fingerscrossed: And yeah, here's to many more years of fun and interaction in art :lolly:

Sure, I have a high standard:P But, I haven't discarded anything, just never finished them cause I didn't like how they were turning out! LOL. I can't type either it is hunt and peck for me, but I have gotten pretty fast at it:giggle: I did take typing in HS, but that was OH so long ago and I lost that "art" long ago:rofl: I need to prioritize also so heres hoping for a prioritized and organised 2008 :fingerscrossed: !!!!!!

Sorry for the late response, my friend. We were talking about my lousy typing. If you had learned the typing skills in highschool, don't they come back now, with so much practice in answering your...fans' mail? :typerhappy: I never had the lesson to start with, so it is forever hunt and peck :(

Sure they could come back, but, I actually prefer my hunt and peck method and at times I am actually quite fast. My kids always make fun of me though:giggle:

I think I'm quite fast with hunt and peck too - from knowing nothing before :D , but my children were...irritated to see me do that. They gave me a typing tutor software many years ago and I just got :bored: practicing the...first lesson and gave up :rofl:

oil is a difficult technique (I'm working on my first still life now...), the colours and detail you've reached here are really respectable... great job :-)

Thank you for your comment. You're the first person telling me that oil is difficult. Many have said watercolors were harder:D So did people tell you that? Your watercolors are nice!

This still life looks very great, milbisous. I love how you painted the grapes. You are someone I'll definately look up to since I'm beginning to paint (just practicing/messing with some mixing and abstract art). You're an idol with your awesome abilities...

Thank you young one for looking up to me as an idol. I'm actually not an expert yet. But what ever you want to know and I can be of help, feel free to ask. You're still young and since you've got an interest, it is a good start:)

Wonderful work on the grapes. Grapes are very hard, and require a lot of blending. Good job.

Aw, well thanks. I also failed to mention that I really liked the amount of color you added into the still life. A lot of people have trouble just throwing the color in there and are scared to do too much.
