  • A big hello

    Hello to everyone, I'm a pencil artist hoping this forum can help me along in the big world of art and craft. I live on the edge of the Forest of Dean, my garden is the boundary, but being quite a remote and rural area I am struggling finding suitable venues to use for displaying my art to gain commissions. I have a website which is hidden in amongst several hundred if not thousands of others offering my type of art so I want to take advantage of all your forum has to offer in way of advice and help (I will be picking brains at some point) but most of all I just want to say hello to everyone already here.

                Hello Back

                Thanks for the welcome everyone, seems like a friendly and helpful forum already. Caroline, just for the info the golden retriever was called Tarn, a rather sad story, she fell asleep on her settee and passed away at quite a young age. This was one of my first commissions and her owner wept with joy when I completed it, I really impressed myself with the likeness I achieved (never done it again mind you) so that set me on the road to pet portraits, I'm sure all of you have such a tale. Really enjoying have a look at all your websites, I cannot believe how talented you all are, I'm a bit in awe, great stuff, got plenty more of them to look at so I'll get back to being nosey.

                Karie.

                  Welcome to the forum

                  Hi Karie,
                  I took a look at your portraits, I used to have a background painting business and trained originally in Fine Art. My partner in the business was a brilliant pencil artist and he eventually ended up in Beverly Hills working as an artist and muralist for the rich and famous. I would like to comment that your work is equally as good and I wish you every success, I hope you get lots of commissions.

                    Hi there...Looking forward to seeing your work as I can't figure out how to see it from here! I believe there's another lady on here from the Forest of Dean and she posted about a school craft fair in October in Bream...if you press today's posts I think it'll come up.
