Re: How Can You fix It,If You Can't See It's Broken ?

The mere word, "entitled", opens up a great big Pandora's box of horrors. We citizens of the USA tend to think that we're "entitled" to a lot of stuff - and, conversely, other folks aren't.

It ain't necessarily so.

Re: Foreshortened Reclining Nude

Rude, crude, and in the mood. It's not a good nude, but keep trying., you just might get it right someday. By the way, you might want to try to paint the face as a part of your learning curve.

Re: How Can You fix It,If You Can't See It's Broken ?

First of all, "America" is the designation of two continents, not a nation. The correct reference is "the USA". Second, the USA is not a "Christian" nation. It was founded by a bunch of rich, slave-owning white men who were agnostics, for the most part. If you're going ...

Re: Inspirational Quotes

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. ~Pablo Picasso One of the most often quoted phrases from a painter that drives me mad every time I see it. Every child is no more an artist than every child is a neurosurgeon. If I didn't think that the acrylic-on-can...
