Dear artists,
it's been a while. Life happened and I stopped coming here for reasons I cannot exactly name, as I don't have a clue myself. Nevertheless, I'd like to return and reboot the group so we're open to business! I've accepted all the work that have not yet expired, sorted it into the folders and cleaned the "Pending" folder. I hope to see your fresh pieces submitted into our gallery and I hope this group can start growing again.
Your founder

I've a drawing that's been sitting in the "Pending" folder since late July. Is there any reason why?

 Judging by your comments on my Drawing 'Morning' it would appear you think it needs some more background on it. I will see what I can do.

Hello Edward, you and Francesca are more than welcome here. I'm personally curious to see your "Morning" when it's finished... my favourite work of yours. ;)
EdwardRobinGoss Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2019
  'Morning' is available. I have just tried to offer it to your group but your site could not be found.

I just wanted to give you a quick thanks for featuring my drawing of the woods and lake under the new Featured X post. That means quite a bit to me. It made me feel pretty good.
