painting, drawing, shading, learning new ways of painting
I always loved drawing, I have done it ever since I can remember. I have since then, gotten brave enough to paint and I love it, but nothing is ever done to me and I'm always seeing my flaws. I like that I learn from them and apreciate all the compliments good and one's that arn't so good. It makes you a better person and makes you drive to do better. I have worked most of my life and I did window painting through out my career too. (for the holidays) I have learned a great deal and I'm greatful for all that I have. My 2 daughters, Clarissa and Alyssa have this great gift as well. I hope to help them develope whatever it is that drives them to be a better person. I have recently had an accident from a work related injury and from other medical issues, I don't think I'm able to return to the work force, so I am regaining all my strenght for my artwork and my family. I do hope to be as good as some of you all, I know practice makes perfect. I love animals and love painting scenary, portraits, and fantasy art. I'm finding the human form is fasinating and there are so many ways to interpret it. My passion is helping others, I really like to help people. I hope you all enjoy my art work as much as I enjoy yours, thank you.
treat people the way you like to be treated, and help those in need, because some day you might be in need yourself.

people aren't always what they seem to be, just a little friendly conversation and you find out that you actually have a new friend. I hope and wish you all a great and safe night!

this is my baby! she is my little love bug! she makes me very happy and my husband says she's a huge help with my depression! She really knows when I'm hurting because she will lay next to me and just love on me! she is a chiuawa mixed with a dauchtson that is what the vet told us, she called her a "chaweenie!" LOL! she is the most precious thing next to my daughters and husband! she's a great dog, she was a rescue dog, from an abondoned building, we took her in and she really fits our family, she knows us as well as we know her! she's a great companion for me!

well, I went to the doctor an I'm on Cymbalta which is a antidepresant pill, pluss my husband let me keep a stray dog, she was abondoned and left in a building. My neighbor brung her home and her boyfriend wouldn't let her keep her so I just looked at my husband with my big brown eyes and well her name is Baby and she is spoiled rotten! she is about 5 months old, and she is the cutiest little dog I have ever seen! She loves to play and she is a lover. She makes me happy and I'm thinking the medicine is helping as I'm painting a little bit more now. The crying is not as much and I'm out of bed a heck of a lot more. My husband is my best friend and really puts up a lot with me. I know he loves me and does a lot to keep me happy. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

thank you Whintney and Cyn I have been in a extremely depressed mood for the last week or so and have a lot of worries. I have not been in the mood to paint or draw for a long time. We moved and now I might not be able to afford where I am at now. But I know things will get better, I hope,. They have to. I want to be out of this slump I'm in and paint again. I thank my friends for listening and I'm sorry I haven't been on for a long time. I hope I will have better news soon! thanks again!

waterboy112 : Try and let some of that dark out on canvas. It is hard to get started, just take a dark color load the brush and slap it on. Then stand back look at it and see where it takes you. All the grate artest fight with the big Depresion.

I just wanted everyone to know that Whitney (twistedzepher) has created the most adorable plushies for my 2 girls to have for their birthdays! I'm so very happy! Whitney made an elephant and a turtle plushy which you all can see on her webbsite www.twistedzepher.deviantart.com they are both featured there and I am just thrilled, she is very creative and she does a great job. She is currently taking comission orders so you better act now! They are very affordable and don't cost much to ship! I'm so proud of her! Thank you so much Whitney for all your hard work!
