Dennis, thanks for commenting on my art work and website. I love the style of your work as well; the colors are beautiful. I will look into the Artist Studio Space some time next week, I am booked all this week with business. Some of my art is on exhibition at Strands at Palm and Herndon. If you get a chance stop by and see my work there. Happy painting, Hilda..........

Thanks back to you also for your complements!
Did you notice that my work is with color pencils?
I belong to Kings River Arts Council out of Reedley, but that one is a little slow for activity.
I also belong to WetCanvas! online forum chat site. Great place to find artists with like minds and mediums! Also a great place to learn a lot! I also soft-of belong to the Love Song Artist community; (see groups).
I am planning on joining Fresno Arts Council when I can. Other than that, I'm just here at the Community, networking with all of you.
hi Dennis I love my job and I love helping the artists! If I can send out info to help the artists I will . . . thank you for your kind words--I appreciate it! Did you ever rent your studio space to an artist? Maria
I really enjoy meeting people here, too. Lots of familiar faces but the chance to get to know so many others doing such good work...! It's a feast seeing everyone in one place.
That swan is a favorite. I'm not really into mold work (unless it's for collage pieces) but the lines of that piece caught my eye--it reminded me of Russian fairytales and lacquerware boxes. Years ago, I worked in theater, doing set construction, and learned to love creating faux surfaces with paint. I still get a thrill out of creating surfaces that look like something they are not. I did those simply for my own satisfaction! ...pleased that they caught your eye.
Thanks for the note--hope to meet you and your wife at a local event as things unfold here.
