Cool Looking for C&C

I'm an old guy (be 58 in May). I started painting a while back and I'm really having fun with it. I'm disabled (Bipolar) and painting is about all I do. I would like to talk with someone who knows more than I do (that won't be tough). Right now I'm at the stage where I'm buying Walmart canvases, 16x20. And I know that these are no good to sell. And I'm getting close to the time when I "think" I might be able to sell some of my paintings.

Here's an example of my work:


It's not quite complete, but enough so that you can see where I'm at. I need someone who I can share information with and someone who can give me "hints" along the way.

I understand this is a TALL request, but I don't get out of the house much and have no one to talk to about painting.


Thanks for listening,
jumper

Re: Looking for C&C

Why not post your work as a WIP (work in progress) and ask for advice. I am sure members will respond.

Thanks Yorky,

I will give that a try. I appreciate your help.

Oh, you can kill this thread if you like. I imagine that I'm not able to delete a top level thread

Re: Looking for C&C

Hi and welcome! This is the right place for your painting, but as already mentioned you can post it in the WIP as well. The Creativity forum is interesting, the Critique centre, and the Business forum, in fact your in the right place

I like your painting very much, so I would just say hang out on W.C, keep posting your work and this is where you will learn a lot of information from other artists.

Hi Katie,

Is there a WIP section? Maybe I didn't understand. And thank you about the painting.

Re: Looking for C&C

To post in the WIP forum, click on "choose" area above, click on critique center, once in critique centre immediately above you will see WIP forum, but you may find you get more feedback in the abstract forum than in this forum which is pretty quiet, and sometimes folk don't always know what to suggest as its abstract, but as I mentioned you can post in two different forums at any one time.

Re: Looking for C&C

Thanks Katie... I had someone say that I was ok where I was
I posted some more paintings. Some of the people said it was difficult to comment on just the one painting so I put some of my others up to show.

thanks
