PostSubject: Gwen's ART   Sat Sep 05, 2009 8:35 am

Faye decided recently to put some of my paintings into frames . I have 5 very large folders of my watercolour, acrylic, folk art,watercolour pencils,ans some oil on paper paintings just sittingv on the shelf .I had 7 years of being a self taught artist,started after my Mother died, I was her carer.My career as an artist came to a sudden stop when I had the bleed in the brain causing a stroke ,.so as not to hit you all at once I 'll put on this painting to start off.

ACRYIC PAINTING.

What a marvelous idea Gwen to frame them and its very nice too, how wonderful to be so artistic and self taught as well that's even better.. I must say I like that choice of frame for that particular Art piece..

Looking forward to seeing what else you can find in your Folders.

Well Done thumb2

They are different Gwen.. The light and the dark
I like the silhouette of the farmer in the doorway.
