Thank you EJ πŸ€—, you are so kind and generous on your compliments. I sure will expand further beyond my artwork on the heart theme. I’d love to see some of your artwork some day also ❀️. Best wishes and have a wonderful day ahead β˜€οΈπŸŒˆπŸŒΉπŸŒΈπŸŒ»πŸŒΊπŸ™xxx

You’re most welcome sweetie. πŸ€—

I did post a dry brush watercolor of a deer.

Just check my past posts it’s listed there under fibromyalgia group.

If I get a chance to get some things out of storage I may post pics in the future.

Thanks for taking interest in my artwork too.

I logged into fibromyalgia group for a min and found your post 😍. I just attached your painting in my reply if you don’t mind so anyone can have a chance to enjoy your artwork in this group. Oh my your dry brush watercolor techniques are out of this world, you brought life to this beautiful deer. How you could separate each strand of hair and the velvety coatπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ. This is beyond beauty πŸ‘Œ. Thank you for sharing your essence to usπŸ€—. I love making jewelries also back then. I’m looking forward to many more of your creation in near future. Cheers EJ, β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™xxx


Thank you GM.

it’s okay to share. I didn’t know how to do that myself.

I’m sorry to tell you that the pic didn’t show up on my phone. That’s been happening frequently for months on my end.

Thank you for your kind compliments.

I have always loved art and started painting with oils as a teenager. Didn’t start again until my late 30s.

Then I became a carer to 8 family members and all of my art went to storage.

Sadly it’s been over 19 years since I’ve done any work.

I seriously injured my back in 2000 and several times since then. The last injury was in physical therapy 2014. Unbeknownst to me I had scoliosis in my back and neck that when my then therapist did a pretzel πŸ₯¨ type movement it permanently damaged my spine.

Currently I need reconstruction surgery on my dominant art thumb/wrist joints and my forearm.

I’m also losing my eyesight.

So I don’t have many things left that I’ve done. Most I gave away.

I too did jewelry.

I also was a professional cake decorator. Largest cake was for 250 people.

I’ve dabbled in almost everything. But painting was by far my favorite.

You are so talented yourself.

With your gifts the World is quite literally your canvas.

Do it as long as you can until you can’t.

It it so rewarding.

EJ πŸ€—πŸ™β™₯️πŸ₯°

Awe EJ, thank you for sharing your life experiences with me. Your kindness and unconditional love to everyone around truly touched my heart. πŸ₯° You are such great example of embracing all aspects of life with so much love and joy. Life is a celebration that starts from our own existence. Thank you for your encouragement that I will always keep myself as a fresh canvas to paint the beauty of the Universe. You are in the Now and enjoy your time with us as we appreciate to have you in our virtual community. I hope you have the best treatment for your upcoming reconstruction surgery. One step, one breath at time. Lots of hugs and support. Much love and light to you. Koko β€οΈπŸŒΉπŸŒˆπŸ™β˜€οΈxxx

Hi Curly 1 πŸ˜ŠπŸŒΏπŸŒΈπŸ¦‹

I’m not getting pics currently but would love to see what you sent.

Thank you sooooo much for your kind compliments. Much appreciated.

I agree that watercolor isn’t as easy as acrylics which isn’t as easy as oils.

I’m allergic to oils and switched to the latter two.

I have an incomplete acrylic of a mountain range here in the Western USA. I took artistic liberties and painted green foliage that represents the era when the region had cooler temps and plentiful rainfall.

How wonderful to do woodworking. I did some small projects myself.

My hubby is a very gifted woodworker and licensed builder. He has made so many beautiful pieces of furniture clocks etc.

He can fix almost anything. He got these skills from his paternal grandfather whom we never met as he was killed while crossing the road to get the mail about 2 years before my hubby and I were born.

I dabbled in almost every kind of handwork.

During art classes in school I did calligraphy. jewelry basket weaving ink/watercolor sculpting Pottery. Clothing Engineering designs.

My hubby’s mom is more my mom because we bonded like mother/daughter when my hubby did his military duty.

She taught me candlewicking crocheting quilting some knitting ..makes me nervous pull stitches too tight.

I’ve always loved cooking and baking. Studied cake decorating and ran my home based business for several years.

I had to put away my treasured handwork skills to be carers to 8 loved ones sadly 5 of them have passed away.

Then my health started failing. So I don’t think I’ll ever be able to dabble in my very much loved arts/crafts again.

I hope you will resume your artistic skills again until you can’t do them anymore yourself.

Best wishes.

Awe thank you Clive. ❀️ It’s wonderful to see you interpret my heart painting and your fresh take on the Apple. I love the core of the 🍎 image which I’ve been pondering upon also. There was this show called the Outer Limit and they portraited the core of an 🍎like a woman silhouette. Have a good rest of the day Clive! πŸŒˆπŸŒ»β˜€οΈπŸ™

in reply to GreatMindfulness

Hi KoKo , when I was at school and doing Art I would always try and look beyond the actual object and if like you could cut it up in different angles and not all the same size you created some kind of effect but I was going back nearly 40 years things are quite different today . But I think you have the talent KoKo as you have shown already . Have a nice day . Clive X πŸ€—

That's beautiful KoKo πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’–πŸ’–πŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒΉπŸŒΉxxxx

For sure you have the talent Mandy, your painting is magnificent and you cook like a chef 😍😍. I love the idea of making your own clothes knit designer. There’s website like Etsy you can start introducing your line of products and it’s worldwide I think. Down the line, I want to open my own wellness center and work for nobody.
