Hi all...

I live in Limpopo Province in the bushveld and have been painting for about 6 years now - although my hours spent in front of the easel could possibly only fit 1 year! I am self taught other than art for 3 years at high school. I attended one glorious art course weekend about 6 years ago where I found that I really did enjoy this pastime. For me it is not about selling the paintings (although a painting sold is a unique thrill:) - but rather discovering what techniques suit me, what medium I like best, combining everything and finding my own style. I love experimenting - although I am somewhat reticent when it comes to the totally unknown. Scared of failure? Or success? I have yet to discover which. Maybe just a little shy to try:)

I have been fortunate to sell a few paintings - you can see them on www.southafricanartists.com http://www.southafricanartists.com/ShowArtist.asp?Code=SCOTT003

There is so much to learn and it will take the rest of my life to discover and enjoy all this wonderful thing called art can offer. I happily undertake that journey and am here to get as much advice as possible, and to share this journey of creativity.

:bigwelcome: to the site Marloe. Had a look at your paintings - very nice. Even better seeing all the SOLD signs next to them. Looking forward to chatting with you here and learning with you.

 :welcome: to the Forum Marloe. Very interested to read that you combine your art with singing. How about posting a video with a song :D
