Hello from Maryland USA

I’m a 59 year old native Marylander who worked as a cabinetmaker for over 35 years; I have been involved with art most of my life. While I have sculpted in clay, lost wax, acrylic and other media, I’m finding that I most enjoy painting with acrylics on canvas and turning wood projects on the lathe. I picked up turning on the lathe about 4 years ago, I'm totally self taught and really like to think out side the box. I want to expand in both the painting and with my lathe work. I'm currently adding pyrography and carving to my turned wooden pieces, painting on them with dye, and acrylics. I'm working towards using more involved subjects in my paintings and wood work. I am looking forward to the opportunity to share my art with others here while I continue to grow and expand my art style and repertoire.

Re: Hello from Maryland USA

Hi Bruce, welcome to wetcanvas.

This is a terrific community and a wonderful resource, use the rolling menu bottom right and you will find forums for just about every art and craft medium here, it's worth exploring the full list of the forums. Read the posting rules at the top of the forums there may be restricted posting.

The links in the top line of my signature will help with the forum and how to resize and post your pictures. You can start uploading pictures on your third post.

A frequent question is "Where are my files?" When you get the uploader box and browse for your photos, make sure you select "All files" or you will not see your jpg files.



If you have a particular site problem, click on my name and send me a private message (pm).

Doug

Re: Hello from Maryland USA

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome.... When previewing this site I thought I saw wood carving - wood working but can't seem to find it now. I'll keep looking around to see what I can find.

Re: Hello from Maryland USA

Members have approximately 30 minutes to edit a post.
Following that time period PM a Moderator and see if he or she can help although the best thing is to think twice prior to posting.
