This old man, he played one...
Does anyone read these things?
Well, I do. So if you're here reading this you should ensure yours is done and interesting and I will come along and read it, eventually, if you leave a comment or a fav.
I'm just an old guy with lots of time on his hands. That happens when you reach a certain stage of life. My grandmother painted flowers and landscapes into her 80s. My mom took up painting in her "golden years" as well. I have several of their works hanging on my walls. My father was competent with a pencil as the pin-up girl on his WWII aircraft gunners manual will attest. However, his chosen medium was wood-working in his later years.
So, here I am, in my not-so-later years and I have the time to noodle around with "art". I like small stuff. Something about visualizing the world in miniature appeals to me. Always has, ever since childhood and watching ants trundle in and out of their hills, busy building and cleaning and doing their everyday thing.
I am no artist. I am a hobbyist. And I tend to think of myself as a mechanic more than an artist. I see the wonderfully new and original work here on DA and it astounds and amazes me. And humbles me. Humbles me a lot. But mostly it inspires. And folks here tend to be very encouraging. Which is cool, and useful for someone who is trying to improve their skills or develop new ones.
So, thank you for visiting, and reading, if you're still here. And mostly thank you for posting your wonderful art, and tutorials, and commentary.
