OMGGGGG... I love this new program, I've sat so long last night and today, that my bum is sore. I'm considering buying depends so I don't have to get up for anything. I LOVE IT !!!!!

Don't want to blow my own horn, but I think this is my most awesome work so far. Did I say I love this program? I used just about every tool there is here, WOW. My hand is cramping, my butt has developed a new callus, my eyes are bloodshot and my husband is tired of fetching me tidbits from the kitchen and coffee. But there you go...... you know how it is when you just can't stop.

Hope you all enjoy!!!!!

Hugggggggggs, Julie Diane

Oh and I included my reference pic... which is from a lake nearby. (which I altered ALOT)

This is looking great Julie! Quite impressive work. But the downside of Artrage 3 is showing itself all around, as you said, tired eyes, sore butts, and spouses that are beginning to mention, in my case, being Artrage3 widows!

I think you should blow that horn!! It's very very beautiful painting, really my favorite of yours. The composition, the color and your brush works all combined this stunning piece. It's not like that photo anymore, it's your own unique way, very artistic to me. :)

Thank you all very, very much...... everyone here is a wonderful group of people. So encouraging and uplifting in their comments. I think I've became excited about painting again! There was several months that I started....deleted and shut it down. Can't wait for my day off to start another one now.

Such a sweet spot.....I could easily pass an afternoon there with my kiddos, skipping rocks, catching minnows.....

Wow, this is my second "group" thank you. And I do sincerely mean thank you.

Foxy... that was taken at a lake here in Kansas, right beside that tree was the first time I ever went fishing with my oldest grandson. It is a wonderful spot, with great memories.
