Super Albino: Llamas are awesome! (179)
As I am sure you can tell just looking at this page, the wellspring of my art had dried up. I can't seem to think of anything I want to paint -- never mind that there are billions of things to paint. I mostly painted from my imagination rather than life, and that wellspring of inspiration has dried up, I just don't feel like painting the same things over and over again.

We’d like to move to a larger city (Eau Claire WI) this summer. It is to be our next stop on the road to that urn on the shelf. To prepare for such a move, I’ve been boxing up my paintings. And, well, there are simply too many of them… Something like 1500 paintings; watercolor on paper, oil on canvas, and acrylics on canvas and hardboard, in sizes from 5”x7” to 24”x48”. To save space and make moving them easier and safer, I unmounted my oil on canvas paintings and packed the canvases in a box. I have several hundred watercolor and acrylics on paper and watercolor canvas in boxes already. But I also h

A new group has started its journey in DeviantArt ... The group is called :icontraditional-masters: Traditional-Masters and is a group for traditional artists who want to publicize their works and know the works of other traditional artists .. 
At the moment we are very few because it has just opened the group, but without a doubt we will grow and we will form a great community ... It would be an honor to have your presence in the group ... If you are interested, please sign up and you will be welcome...
