thxx, i came from far, when i was 8 years old, standing next to my grandmother who olso painted, and it even goes more back into 1899, still got 2 paintings of the first generation painters in the family, so i ame the 3th gen, and probably the last one, becauce the kids here, and the kids of my brother and sister are into youtube and instagram, they don't want to commit to what my family loved.. but i can understand that, new era, new cocial entertainment, but i keep doing what i love, and like to share it with you guys, hope i can give some tips ore get some, becauce my long time stress still is painting hands, yes, those damn hands,

Wow the second and the third of these last paintings are superb, the only thing faulting the third lightly is the shape of the horse but its no biggie really, not to me anyway!

I noticed about the hands by the way but its not as bad as you might think, it doesnt distract away from the subject too much.

Nice backstory, what a shame your kids dont follow but dont dread it yet, the impact of loving and/or creating art in general can strike at any age.

yep, my father told me that olso a long time ago., but i don't get focused on that, i ame staring on this horse for 36 years now, its fine for me:biggrin:
he was born in 1899 and died in 1924, he was just 25 years old when he painted both this paintings, and died while working on the man with puppy in his hands, so his brother worked it further of,, but to bad, olso he died,, and then, it was in my grandmothers hands, and she finished the painting in 1945.. and in 2010, my brother let one of the paintings fall, and the canvas damaged bad ( happy it was just the background), so i brought them to a restoration company, and now, they hang on my living room,,

the hands? wel, i must be unest, i always wanted to paint hands like da vinci,, still it is a lot to learn from here,,:wink:
