Re: I miss the board, too
Wed Sep 3, 2014 12:41

The days where this board was flourished with posts as well as input, reading and learning tips others passed along sure has been missed.
Social media has some good points but in a very few I enjoy, It has become an easier place to stay in touch like Dave said, that for most it has replaced my time I spend on e/mail.
I agree with Dave, we met a long time ago through this web site here, (thanks to Bob & Jen ), I am friends with Dave`s wife and enjoy her posts on FB , she is a very talented artist and her work does give me inspiration & motivation to let my art flow in creation, but having to scroll through the "selfies" and drama that are posted is just enough, that is where the un-friend button has been my most "used key" a lot lately--
Being able to see pictures of others work and music shared is a plus there, but to get down into the real grit of facts and experience from the "school of hard knox" some of us have done for the last 40+ years, it all comes back to "full circle" here.
Good to see this page with posts again, I Enjoy every one of them, time to shut this down and spread some more paint, one stroke at a time.

                If we can get just a few of us, that would be enough to swap some work. You are right, make it December - plenty of time, and makes for a good tie-in to the Christmas season. It was 2008 when we did... more

                      the deadline to send, as Dec 10th due to the high holiday traffic shipping business. That way it allows for screwups, which most certainly will occur. That gives a 60 day time frame to complete and... more
