Welcome 12 er,

Can you explain "12 er?"  I'm thinking you are a nurse in the Emergency Room on the 12th floor of a hospital.

Whatever it means, we are happy to have you with us.  This is a great place to be if you want to enjoy painting and drawing.

Look forward to seeing your work.

Rofl, I have never viewed my name this way :D In my country (in Austria we speak German) there is a city called "Zwoelfaxing", and I thought it would be funny to call one of my first accounts after this city. With every new account the name went through an evolution, turning from "Zwoelfaxing" to "12axing", and now I am using the abbreviation "12er". As you can see I have never had an Emergency Room in mind :P .

Thanks, 12er.  I feel better knowing the origin/meaning of 12er now.

Again, welcome.   Since you explained your name, I'll explain mine.

 "mea hamo pena"   (Hawaiian words meaning "thing splattered with paint) - It's my own translation for painter or painting.

We are a fun bunch.  Hope you enjoy being here as much as we do.

Lisafromoto,

It's so fun to learn what our names stand for.  I thought your name might be Lisa Fromoto.   I was thinking you might be a bit Japanese.

Welcome Tw├Âlfer (12er). Buckle up, and enjoy the ride.

And Mea - what a wonderfull nick name. "thing splattered with paint".

We have a cat here in my house we call "Kolipoki", "South Pacific" tribal language for "White man with weak stomach".

Thanks, John.  Yes, many times I end up the "thing splattered with paint."

John, one thing that has helped me immensely was taking the Let's Draw course.  Up until I learned to draw, I could not even think of myself as an artist, no matter how much my friends liked my paintings.

No I never leave home without my sketch pad!
