Ok, I'll bite. I'm 43. I'm a Child Welfare Supervisor in Tulsa during the daytime. I've also been a professional musician since I was 18. I teach private piano lessons. I have dabbled with CP for a few years, but never took it seriously. I've never had any formal art training, with the exception of about 5 art lessons just recently. About 8 months ago, I really got more interested in CP art. I guess it was my mid-life crisis, and my need to create. Now I'm hooked. My art is still pretty unsophisticated, but I'm learning. I'm mostly interested in Seascapes, Landscapes, and Portraits.

Full time artist I pretty much work in most mediums, depending on what strikes my fancy at the time.

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

Hi!

I'm Steve, 43, IT lacky by trade. Born in the UK, but living in California.

Sort of new to art - did some when I was about 14-18, then stopped for a while and restarted with gusto about 6 months ago. New to wet canvas, new to colored pencils, but I'm really enjoying both.

I've been doing mostly sketches with mechanical pencil, I've done some acrylics of my kids, but I'm no painter. I love to draw people, when I can get hold of them.

The name is one of the many odd things my wife says from time to time.

Aww, Greg, it's not a midlife CRISIS, it's a midlife Creative Infusion!! What kind of music do you play? Do you record, perform, etc?

Chris, neat art! I especially like the pygmy owl. Looking forward to seeing lots of cp art from ya.

Steve, welcome here! Also looking forward to seeing lots of your work! You have lots of company...there's lots of us who got re-interested in art in a big way after getting career and family's established!

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

ROFL Robin, I like the way you think!! I play piano and keyboards. I also sing some. Most of what I've done involves leading church music. I was part of a Gospel Music band in the 90's and we did get to travel a little bit. Mainly over Oklahoma and Texas. I've done alot of weddings, funerals, and dinner music also with the piano. I've recorded just a little bit, not much. One of the biggest thrills that I've had recently was performing on the talent show on a Carnival Cruise. On that same show performing was the man who wrote Pretty Woman and many other of Roy Orbison's songs. I think his name is Bill Dees.

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

I am also new to cp. I was given a set of prism for my birthday (53 yrs young) and have become addicted. I love that I am able to do details, seem to have more control, and have beautiful color. I have worked in oils, acrylics, pencil, and pen and ink, but cp is becoming my favorite medium, now I just need to get better. I am a mom of two adult children, 21 and 23, moved to Arizona from the east coast 3 yrs ago. I love this site, I have found so much helpful information, and wonderful people so willing to share their knowledge and experience!

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

I'm new too. I'm Jim, novice artist who is engaged (nearly 30 years old), and living in Philly (USA).

I'm currently writing a book titled "The life of a life model--an insider's guide to life modeling".

Would love to hear from artists with good stories to tell about using Life Model's. From a artist's perspective, what do you have to share? are their embarrasing model moments? Does it feel "intimate" to be seeing someone in a vulnerable state? how can an instructor and students help calm a nervous model? What the youngest model you have used (or heard used)...what's the oldest?

Most of all, what do you think models need to know about the people they are posing for?

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

Jim

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

I am a retired stage designer, aged 58, married no kids (before married with kids), graduated some decades ago from Academie of Arts in Hamburg.
I've been around nearly 20 years, somehow all over the world. Since I am independent and have got my own sourcing I can afford to be a full-time artist. Recently I've got quite a success in China. I am following up my good contacts all over the world and try to make something good from it. I am also doing charity things, for example now a German first show of a theatre play done by an American artist and writer. We are doing a professional production with hindranced actors. I am to be the director of the play, doing the stage design together with the author, but dramaturgization is done in a team of famous actor friends and theatre people.
I am to translate the play also!
Peter

Hi all you great new WC joiners! Welcome to you all. If I named you all, I would forget somebody and not want to hurt anyone's felings, I'd better let it just be unclusive.

This is a great place to learn the nuts and bolts of CP work. You will get kind critiques here. Nothing scathing. If you want serious critique there is a part of WC specifically for that. We try to be nurturing here, helping each other advance our command of the medium without overpowering everybody's own unique style. So well met, and please do continue to post and put up new WIP(works in progress) threads. It is how we ALL learn.
