Hi everyone I enrolled 2 days ago and today downloaded a few of my watercolours ( hope they are in the right place. I took up painting only about 2 years ago after my 67 th birthday and found I really enjoy the sence of achievement when I finish a picture. I hope with the help of you all to carry on the learning process.

Your story is very much like mine. In May 2014 I started painting and knew right away I found a hobby I loved. I was 66 when I started.

The folks here have been very helpful and I have improved considerably by taking their advice.

Welcome Bobby. With an avatar of Bobby Boy you must be from the south. I live in Arkansas.

Man ist nie zu alt um ein Hobby zu beginnen -
aber es geht nicht mehr so leicht wie in jungen Jahren.
Sie haben schon sehr schöne Arbeiten in Ihrem Album!

One is never too old to start a hobby -
but it's not as easy as it at a young age.
You have very beautiful work in your album!

Thank you for lovely comments Terry & Ernst I was always told you are never too old and know now that is the case.
I just love to paint &

Hello and welcome! I cruised through your pictures and have to say..great job! I think for me the snow scene really resonates. They are all wonderful but I identify with that one in particular.

We are happy to have you here and look forward to seeing more from you!

Hello Chando I am very pleased to meet you and thank you for the very warm welcome. The snow scene is the picture that I have painted more times than any other for different members of my family who have had it framed for there walls.
