Oetztal - Austria

Beautiful, Mia. I always love the soft touch in your painting.

Lovely place. What a healthy holiday this is, I should be doing this!! A beautiful drawing Mia.

Thank you very much for your lovely comments and for taking the time to have a look at my work. I posted this last night and I am already "shot" to page 117...

I am very grateful for your comment and for the tip about the drawing section. I never look at the different techniques departments before, just the general gallery. I appreciate!

Thanks so much for your comments on my Lunar New Year card. Concerning the issue of multiple simultaneous postings, I was for a while upset by the inability to retrieve and view the paintings of artists I want to follow. For example, when travelling, I do not always have access to high speed internet connections, so sometimes it takes me forever to comb through all the recent postings to find works of particular artists. I recognized that low connection speeds are not caused by this website or multiple postings to it, so I resolved to search for specific artists. The disadvantage of this approach is that I do not always remember exact spellings of names. Lately, I have thought of an alternative approach: whenever any of us posts a new work, then that artist might also post an “invitation to view”, with a link to the new work, on the General Discussion – Exhibitions, Competitions & Your Work forum. In that way, people who want to follow your work can instantly access it and give comments.
