I just found your site and began the pencil drawing lessons. I love it!! I don't know that I will ever reach the 'artist' state but I intend to enjoy the trip. Thank you for doing this.

 :welcome: , Angela, to the Paint Basket Tribe. :)
Just remember that even Leonardo di Vinci started from rock bottom. In fact, all of us did. Patience, practice and perseverance will get you to the top of the range. Enjoy the ride :flowers: Don't be afraid to post your work here on the forum.

 :bigwelcome: Hi Angela.... you can ignore that annoying little person in the back...that's just me!  :2funny:

You've started at the perfect spot ..... and trust me, you are already in the artist state... you're here!  :yippee:

Do post your work, we'll all help you along if you get stuck, and you can pass on any tips you learn to me! I need all the help I can get!  O0   Welcome aboard for the 'funnest' times you can have with a pencil and paper.
I doubt you'll need it, but I keep a big rubber on hand at all times. Not that I need it mind...  :whistle:     :faint:

 :welcome: Welcome Angela. I started here in February and did not think of myself as an artist and certainly did not think I'd ever make the "artist state". I am delighted to tell you that with the wonderful lessons and supportive group we have at PB you are going to see yourself as an artist very quickly. I do hope you will post your work. We would love to encourage you.  :flowers:

:bigwelcome: Angela, of course you will reach "Artist" state - you did so the minute you picked up the pencil to draw O0
