I don't make it here often. With all the social media crap, my website, and the actual completion of the work that I show, I barely have time to myself. So I fit gallery sites in on slow days. So enjoy the huge art dump.
I also have T-shirts available now on my website. I know. Real original. Still, though. Please go check em out. And maybe buy one. If you want. No pressure. Seriously. No pressure. But I may starve if you don't buy one. But still, no pressure.
Normally I try to go through and thank each individual for the favorites. During my two years here, at DA this hasn't been difficult. Heh! Normally it's a big surge of about 10 faves for a new piece. However, today I logged on to see over 500 feedback messages. Of course my first thought was there was a glitch. A bug. A gremlin.
I have no idea who to thank, but somebody liked my Skull and Rose piece. And alot of people (to me) must pay attention to what they like. So.....I end up with alot of faves for Skull n Rose.
I don't have time to thank you all individually. I apologize.
But here is a mass thank you to all of you. It's the best I c
A little late adding this.
In June I went to the Illustration Academy in Richmond, Va. What a great experience that was. 16 hour days of painting and drawing. Great instructors and a lovely city.
I wish I would have known about it sooo long ago. Would have been great to have all that information when I was younger. Maybe I wouldn't be in the "old man" position I am now.
Being taught picture making by such great instructors as Sterling Hundley, Jon Foster, Doug Chayka, Anita Kunz, C.F. Payne, etc. is mind blowing.
Most of them are instructors at TAD (The Art Department) also.
