Thumbs up Longtime reader, first-time poster

Hello everyone

I've been a lurker on WC for a few years - I first discovered the site a few years ago after being stuck at home following a bad accident and casually getting back into painting (acrylics). I'm completely healed now and decided to become more serious.

I'm into birdwatching and like to photograph the birds I see locally, which become the references for most of my paintings. I attended my first art festival this spring and received a lot of positive feedback - a lot of people wanted to learn more about the wildlife we have in the area and were surprised by the diversity.

I'm looking forward to finally interacting with the folks on WC.

Re: Longtime reader, first-time poster

Hi, glad you found us.

My sister and I both birdwatch, she's in Ontario. I have quite a few photos in the Reference image library(click here) of birds I see here including eagles (this is a breeding ground here so I literally see dozens every day in the winter). Someone recently spotted a painted bunting here, if I get a photo I'll upload that too.

Nice to meet a fellow birder! Enjoy the site and welcome

Re: Longtime reader, first-time poster

Birds are so fun, and great entertainment.
WC! is a great place to learn new things and make friends!
Look around and find a subject or medium you like, there is truly something for everyone here.
Have fun exploring lots of things to do, Learning Areas and Monthly Challenges in several forums.
Look at some of the forums and you'll soon find a fit that's right for you, or maybe several forums.
