: Am I in the right place?

Hi there everyone, I just signed up today.

I'm trying to find a creative community in order to share and discuss my own and other people's art endeavors.

I have painted with acrylicx in the past (beginner, self-taught), and still occasionally work in ink drawing and watercolor, but currently I've been trying my hand at reconstructing/upcycling clothing, some "3D" stained glass projects, and creating upcycled (and stained glass) jewellery.

Obviously, I'm all over the map!

I would really like to find a supportive online community. I've read a few threads, and you all sound like a friendly and encouraging bunch!

Will I fit in here if I start uploading photos of glass and clothing projects?

Artist here range from beginner hobbyists (me) to really magnificent professional artists. If you need help navigating the web site be sure to ask. Just click on my name and leave a message.

To load pictures to your albums:
>create an album. Click on "user CP" above and select "Picture and Album"
>after you have uploaded a picture be sure to write something in the field Caption over what is already there. If you don't do that others will get the error "Invalid Album" when trying to view your picture-- it's a glitch on this web site

Hi Tellervo, of course you are welcome here, pull up a chair. :)

Thanks so much for the warm welcome! *pulls up chair* :)

I'll get to work on creating an album. Thanks so much for the directions. I really look forward to being a part of this.

Sometimes it feels like I'm working in a vacuum in isolation, KWIM?

Time to get to work. Thanks again, and hope you have a very warm and happy day... still winter where I am...

We keep getting a taste of Spring to tease us and then it goes back to winter. Everyone is so grumpy it seems. Come on Spring...for real!
