When I retired I found I had more time for watercolor painting and photography
As gratifying as these activities are, my ability to share my art with others was limited.
One Sunday morning, my life partner saw an advertisement for deviantart in the local newspaper. Everything changed after that.
My art has improved as I see what other deviants are producing; like this painting by smilingStone
and this one by SKMOON
or this photograph by DeeOtter
and this one by RHCheng
And, my creative journey is greatly enhanced as I experience the joy of sharing my original traditional art with others.
This is my half of a trade with my good friend Binnus
and this is the piece Binnus
sent to me, which now lives in my living room.
Happy birthday deviantart Hope it's your BEST
and we have many more years to share together!!!
PS - I'm open for snail mail trades - just send me a note if you're interested.
