Well, New to this website but Old in years - LOL.
I have absolutely no artistic training ( as you will see) but started "painting" on my computer about 6 years ago after a breakdown.Originally I only used Publisher but I mostly use Adobe Elements now.
Here are two I did yesterday 'cos it was raining!

Welcome JJ! Nice paintings. They bring up the emotion of isolation to me. Hang around here long enough and you will have more boats in your paintings!

Welcome to WC!, and what a great start you have here.
I like the calm colors, the relaxing scene, and the overall tone of both pieces.

I really can't wait to see more. I really would not be able to come up with anything more theraputic than what you do now!!!...Beautiful!

Hello Jean - welcome to the madhouse! Your paintings are very individual - I like the three dimensional effects of the second one, and the muted colours.
