  1. Thanks so much for visiting and following my blog! I appreciate it very much. I’ve enjoyed my visit here and look forward to following your posts. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hello I wanted to comment on a few ideas. I agree that when I paint from other folk’s opinions or aesthetic my work suffered. Years of critique, killed my spirit. Art was not pleasurable. I digressed into music. Tho now I am having the most fun I’ve ever had drawing with colored pencil. It is important not to stop as Warhol said. One time he mentioned to musician John Cale something to effect of, ” you made 3 songs, you should have written 16″ Produce, produce produce. Yeah Pollack was a mess creating a mess. Warhol was the reaction to him. Not sure what to say about Dali, tho when I think of Duchamp i was always amused when he said that he would quit Painting to play chess, because chess is just like painting, PLAYING WITH SPATIAL RELATIONSHIPS! enough pedantic art blabber from me….thank for your time!

    1. Such great comments. I totally agree that listening to too much criticism can kill your creativity. And I didn’t know about Duchamp and chess. That is thoroughly amusing!

  3. Thank you for liking my post. I like your blog. Not only is it informative (the tutorial on How To Draw Lips and the flower step by step photographs) but entertaining reading, especially the quotes from famous artists. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you so much, that’s a really great compliment. I really like your illustrations, as well. Very creative. I will be sure to keep updated on your blog!

  4. Hi Sara, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and liking my latest post. I really like what I see here. Drawing and painting is something I enjoy, although haven’t done for a very long time. I rediscovered my pencils the other day (as you would know from reading my post) and now I’ve discovered your blog with that great lips tutorial! I may have to pick up my pencils again!

    1. Well that makes me very happy. I think you should try picking up your Derwents again. Show that teacher who told you you need to “practice a lot!” Thank you for following my blog. I can’t wait to read more of your blog.

  5. I can not speak English very well Sara, and I am not good at replying or commenting, but you are doing great here, a little bit jealous if I see some one doing great thing at the thing that they love. Wish i could be people who do what they love, and one of them it’s you ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike ๐Ÿ™‚

    Been away for a while, but now I wanted to catch up and say “thank youโ€ฆ I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my โ€˜point n shootโ€™ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe youโ€™ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great dayโ€ฆ


  7. Thank yo so much for following my blog, Sara. Your art work looks impressive and I know I’m going to enjoy following you from now on. I do admire people who can recreate the things they see around them – whether it’s on paper, canvas, or whatever!

  8. Hi Sara. Thanks for visiting my blog. I really like your drawings, especially the one of the duck. Someday I hope to draw as well as you do.

    (And yes, your cat looks crazy–but super cute!)

  9. Hi Sara. Just letting you know that I’m nominating you for the Liebster Award, because your blog is wonderful! I was given this award by another blogger and wanted to pass it along. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Hi Sara,
    Though you do have more than 200 followers I have nominated you for a “Liebster Award. If you don’t have time to write about it, don’t worry, it’s more to let you know that yours is one of the blogs that inspires me most and makes me think if only I practice enough I could actually be a decent artist. Unfortunately, I’m interested in too many other things, too ๐Ÿ˜‰
    If you wish to accept the nomination or are simply interested in my 11 answers to the 11 questions that come with the award, you can check them out here: http://evozeta.com/2015/06/29/liebster-award/
    Thanks and keep that art coming!
