HI, Glad to have found this site. I am an ex Los Angeles type that relocated to the beauty and joys of country living. What a great way to create art! I have been painting in oils for about 40 years with a 35 year hiatus in order to work and pay bills. You know the routine, I'm sure. I'm back in school bringing myself up to date on my oil painting skills. I stumbled on this site while looking for further instruction on painting fabric and folds and I think I'll stick around for a while.

Welcome to the Paintbasket.com forum, Aelf

We're happy you found us.  I'm sure you'll enjoy this site as much as we do.  We learn and laugh together -- maybe even shed a few tears together as we support each other through life's struggles.

I do oil, too, but today am trying water color at the urging of other PB-ers.  Stay tuned to see how it turns out.

We look forward to seeing your work.

Thanks, Denise.  I'm using the paper you gave me.  I hope I do it justice.

I've got Dennis all tuned up for his fruit still life so I can follow along.


Yup, would be great to have more Hawaii PB-ers.  Liz and I missed you yesterday.

 :bigwelcome: :wave: Hello, greetings, and welcome to PB Aelf! I have learned more here than anywhere else I've tried to learn and improve my works. I know you can and will do splendidly.  O0

Do you still have any of your old work hanging about? If you do, would love to see some. Don't be a stranger, pop in and show us what you're up to.  :clap:
Cheers, Val

 :welcome: Aelf!  I'm really looking forward to seeing some of your paintings.   :yippee:


You'll love this friendly place.  We give each other feedback and learn from each other and with the great teaching we get from our two  :smart: :smart: tutors, it's a real joy to see the progress we are making.


You'll get your skills back in no time, I'm sure.  Have fun and happy  :painting:
