I'm doing digital art. I would love to try canvas, but there's is no room for me yet to do so. Anyways keep up the good work =)

Thanks. Little Louis is growing up and talking now. Indeed done with Acrylic. Over the years, I've bought way to many tubes of acrylic paint to switch. Not cost effective.

Thank you. I just chatted with the "Father" yesterday. The "Son" is now 17 months old and starting to talk. Time moves on and a painting is just a moment in time.

:) It's easy to see how fast time flies by looking at children. But this moment will be kept for years, and it's one of greatest moments of parenthood ;)

Thank you so much Myrium. I finally was able to hand deliver the canvas to the proud father in Munich (had to trudge through snow for the final delivery). He had it framed and wrapped it as a Christmas gift for the lovely mother. When I heard it brought tears to her eyes, it made all the efforts worthwhile.

I did not want to reply to your wonderful comment... because when I do... it goes away.

Your one sentence is so touching and warms my spirit.

Thank you!

It was a special moment, I'm happy I saved it for posterity.

Your piece "Silence" is beautiful. It gave me a calm. Good luck in your search to find your name... Have to be careful though... Give the "Talking Heads" song "Seen and Not Seen"... and you will understand the concern!

All the Best

:) Thank you for your comment. I'm glad you like silence.
But I'm sorry, I don't no what you mean about that part of my name? :confused:
jfkpaint's avatar
Sorry for being enigmatic... when I went to your home page, below "diantha 75" It said "I want to change my name". I was making a joke about this... and that is what the Talking Head song touches on in a round about way
