Some things may be better the second time around!

There are almost 10 years worth of Spotlights, so I hope you find some useful information and inspiration! It was a pleasure hosting and getting to know so many nice folks and talented artists!

Re: The Spotlight - June 2019 - Finale

I have only just seen this as, like others, I'm not here so often these days. I am sad that the Spotlight is ending but I am so glad to have followed it for many years. Don, you will never know how much you and the Spotlight have helped me over the years. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'd be nowhere without the Spotlight! I've learnt so much here and I applaud you for your patience, understanding and fabulous teaching!

Ruth, thank you so much for your comments! It means a lot when folks tell me that I (er, I mean the Spotlight) was helpful in some way! I will have to say that your work has always been an inspiration to me - and I'm sure many others here on WC!


Don

Re: The Spotlight - June 2019 - Finale

Thank you Karen and Don! I'm sorry about the Spotlight finishing, though I do understand why. You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.......

Re: The Spotlight - June 2019 - Finale

Ooh is this going away!!

I have not been to canvas for a long time because there were some security issues with the website it was not a https. Now when I come back and see
this nice forum has end it is sad.

I have seen so many nice people here and it has been sooo fun to critique
others and get critique my self.

THANK YOU DON FOR DOING THIS HARD WORK!!!!!!!!!!

It has really helped to get critique and meet the people here.

If there has not been many people here lately I can sure understand why it has ended.

But what shall you Don do now? Are you going to be at the pastel forums and show us your paintings?

I wonder where all the people are?

I would like to go back from beginning and look at the lessons and paintings
will it be open for that?

If in future there is some interest for using the same photo and paint from and critique each other like this thread but without the lessons will it be possible?

Ruthie lovely painting. What are you doing now, are you painting outside being here?

I will have to look at watergirls paintings, they are so lovely also.

Allydoodle I wonder where she is, and all the others that used to be here.
There were also a guy painting birds, it was a fun time.

I wish you all the best and that you find subjects to paint which make you happy!!!!!!!

Thank you again Don. It is priceless what you have done!!! It meant a lot!!!

Re: The Spotlight - June 2019 - Finale

AnnaLisa, Thanks for the kind words! While the Spotlight has ended, I am still here and will continue to be a guide on the pastel forum. Many of our older Spotlight threads can be found here...

http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=439

...so there is plenty to look at for those who weren't on WetCanvas for all of the past 10 years! More recent Spotlights can still be found in the Soft Pastel Talk sub-forum.

Don
