What happened here on DeviantArt?  There are now so many pop up ads that I can't even do anything anymore.  There used to be a few, now it crashes my web browser.

thanks for the fav :woohoo:

Thank you for the fave!

thanks for the watch

I'm so glad you found this photo as a favorite. I know you don't paint people as a rule (or you don't post those paintings) but if you did you would do Audrey just like this. Or at least that's what I thought when I shot this.

That's funny! You are so right!

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...

Regards ... Hi! :icontraditional-masters:
Thank you for the fave :-)
