I agree wholeheartedly.  O0 It really pains me to see that such a few simple words can completely demoralize and crush the hopes and dreams of someone brave enough to venture into the fine arts. It matters not whether it be as a hobby, or the dream of becoming a professional artist.

What is a ballet dancer without their toe shoes?
What is a carpenter without a saw, hammer and nails?
What is a builder without a blueprint?

All artists within their own right, but take away the tools......

Bev, I'm  booking a seat in my class for your other half....along with Jenny's!  :knuppel2:    :fight:   
Cheers, Val

 ;D I'll tell you this much- my husband says little now and picks his words!  So you can withdraw him from your class, Val!   :2funny: ~Liz

there is no such thing as cheating - only using the tools at your disposal to get the job done as best as possible. You can choose which tools YOU want to use.

Got it, Nolan!   O0  We use anything or everything at our disposal to create a work of art that we can call our own- done with our own hands.
