 :welcome:  to the Paint Basket, Francine. Let us know what mediums you paint/draw in and don't be shy in posting you work. No one will pull you down, as they all started the same way O0

 :thankyou: everyone!!  I am painting with oils.  Have been taking lessons from a art teacher but I have found that she is not instructional enough for me.  Looking forward to exploring lessons on this site!!

Yes, Francine.  I would love to be able to paint all day, every day.  Oh, well, I can dream, can't I?

 :bigwelcome:    Oh Francine!!!  :2funny:   You have hit the nail on the head! I often tell myself I have 'things' to do....but then pick up a pencil, a brush, and next thing I know....  :eek: it's dark outside, I have a hungry man looking across the table at me... all of the 'chores' I set out to do are still there, (good thing, I'd hate to miss out on those...  :faint: ) and all I can say is.....  :heeha: whew! I'm sure glad I didn't miss breakfast!!!  :2funny:

Welcome to the club, I am really looking forward to sharing your artistic journey!  :clap: Come often and enjoy!  :yippee:
