    Smile Hello All

    Just wanted in introduce myself and say how much I have enjoyed viewing some of the art in the gallery. I've been "playing around" with computer graphics for a few years now using Paint Shop Pro. An art show sponsored by my latest employer has inspired me to do more. I purchased ArtRage 2 a while ago, version 2.1 but never really got into it as I also enjoy creating web pages and have several sites I maintain.

    I just upgraded to the latest version and I am looking forward to learning how to use this software especially in how to create the "texture" looks of a real painting.

    I know I will never be able to produce work such as I've seen here, but I am anxious to give it my best shot. Looking forward to viewing more of your work and gaining valuable insight into this amazing world of art and graphics.

    Let me add my welcome!

    Give it your best shot, and let us see what you´re doing. Most here are interested in seeing what people are doing and will offer good advice, comments, and suggestions, if you wish.

    So get to painting!

    welcome. you'll get a lot of support here, and you'll find that AR helps your skill improve. My favorite tool is layers for adding something new to the painting. If it doesn't work.. delete layer,,, if it does.. merge layer. I also use the eraser quite abit, and of course I use the smile that come with every finished work.

    Thank You for your warm welcome

    Thanks for your warm welcome. I appreciate your support.

    My graphics skill does not even come close to what I've seen here, but I enjoy learning and hope that AR will enable me to do at least a little more than what I am doing currently. I didn't realize I had any creativity in me until I reached the age of 50 some years ago when I created my first web page and eventually tried creating some of my own graphics.

    I believe, however, that art is a skill, one that you either have or that you don't and I unfortunately fall into the latter group. But I'm going to give it a try and see what happens.
