New Here

cjm70142September 17, 2007

Hi, I am new to this forum, have been a fan of Garden Junk for years. but needed some back up on painting. Have painted for years just off and on but am now on SSI and it is not enough so have taken to painting to sell.

I really do enjoy painting and love to see other peoples work and my next favorite is to buy new books.

I do use patterns in books but do try to draw my own some too.

Painting to me have kept me sane at times, it is so theraputic

So far just from searching this forum a lot of talented people come here.

I just got a new digital and when I learn I will post some pictures of my work. I am just now finishing up fall and Halloween items. ready to start on my most favorite things Santas. Well looking forward to visiting this site everyday. Paint well and often Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,

Welcome! I'm fairly new here, too, and I'm a lot newer to painting than you are. I'm finding it relaxing and fascinating.

Welcome Carolyn! It's so nice to have you with us. Just in case you don't know we have 3 different sections for you to check out. The Gallery has lots of pics. Discussions is to talk about painting stuff and then we have Conversations to chat about whatever. Feel free to post anywhere, but check out all 3 places so you don't miss anything. We have some instructions on how to post pics. I'll bump them up for you and if you like free online patterns I'll bump up a post we have for lots of those too.
We look forward to seeing all your projects and getting to know you! ~Anj

Welcome to the forum Carolyn, sure gald you joined in on the fun. To post pics - go to the search box on the front forum page and type in "For Newbies - Easy Instructions to Post Pics" - that is my post from a few months ago. It's easy once you get the hang of it. If you have any problem, just ask and someone is always willing to help.
