Howdy y'all,
Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. :)
I've owned a custom picture framing business and have been surrounded by beautiful works of art.
Now that I'm retired I now have time to pursue my interest in art.
I am just starting so I'm glad I found this website and I'm really excited to be taking the drawing courses and other mediums as well.

Welcome to PB.  There is so much here to learn.  I have not regretted one minute of the time I spend here.  Everyone one is so supportive and the lessons are fantastic.

Enjoy - look forward to seeing your work.
