How Did We Miss These? (part 6)
For 2011, I wanted to feature people whose artwork has somehow slipped under the radar, so I asked my watchers to send in links of people they'd like to see get a little more exposure.  So based on their suggestions, and a not-so-quick search of the people I watch, I came up with a large list of people who have surprisingly evaded notice.
Some of these artists have been active deviants since Fella was in diapers - We're talking 7, 8, 9 years - and still don't have the millions or even thousands of pageviews one might expect.
Here's the sixth installment:

A garden can only grow with time...
Although some of you may not have realised, photography isn't the only way to capture an image. Drawings, paintings and other such medium can take longer, but the end result can often be much more rewarding in beauty. Imagination can often be an important part of this process and we can add things that a camera can not. In a way, we can add magic to such a simple scene. Also, by showing using our techniques, our styles and by introducing our characters into these images, we personalise our gardens.

Quite a while ago I submitted some pieces to a small exhibition run by the company of a friend and his colleague. The drawings seemed reasonably well received and, therefore, when the exhibitors said they were planning to put on a further exhibition and requested to show my pieces again, I agreed to let them hang on to them. In the interim the two colleagues had a disagreement and dissolved the company. Despite me asking numerous times during this period and since for the return of my art, the drawings were not forthcoming.

Of course, it's typical that the pieces you show are often pieces of which you are proudest and/or to which you have a great connection. However, now feeling I have exhausted my avenues and after many months of stalled responses and now being completely ignored, I finally accept that these drawings are probably no longer in existence and that I will never get them back. I have, therefore, laid them to rest.

On the off chance that they are spotted anywhere, please let me know. Otherwise, RIP.

Thanks a lot for the favourite of "Cupcake" :)

Besides the fact that I'm probaby a hundred years older than you, I want to draw like you when I grow up.
(I too have had dry spells of more than a decade long, during which I decided I would probably never pick up a pencil again.)
You have a wonderful artistic style, a beautiful, beautiful way with your pencils.

Thank you for all your faves, the watch and your kind comments. You have a lovely gallery yourself, especially the drawing of the work horses. And it's encouraging to know that other people go through dry spells as well. :-)
