Nice one, Sandra!October 31, 2017 at 2:44 pm #115965Saswati MisraParticipant@saswati-misra
I am Saswati (Sash) presently living in Farmingtonhills, Detroit. I am from India and off course passionate (rather crazy) about art and love to learn. I got introduced to this beautiful world of Doodlewash through Charlie as I surprisingly got an offer to feature my works. That was an wonderful experience!! I found some lovely people here with whom I already acquainted but frankly speaking the introduction was needed! So this is a good way to mingle…
I hope to get to know you all shortly…Oh and did I tell you all that I am not a lady of words so pardon my short introductory passage. I wish to continue the thread further!!
Best Regards to Everybody…

Hello, My name is Tammy. I just chanced upon Doodlewash. I learned how to paint watching Bob Ross and Alexander many,many years ago. Acrylic became my paint of choice and I started selling my art on ebay for 3 years. That was around the year 2000. I did that for 3 years but due to financial burdens I had to go get a paying job. I found I no longer had time to paint and more or less quit for 13 years. This last year I’ve had a renewed interest in it and have become quite fond of watercolor techniques and pen and ink. (Still learning these). Having found a wealth of painting tutorials on YouTube, I’m painting again with abandonment! Some of my favorite YouTube Artists are Steve Mitchell and Peter Shiller. My art is popular with my co-workers which was really quite strange to me but anyway, stopped by here to unite with artists who also share the love of paint. I am well into my later years of life and painting is very relaxing although I still work also at my full-time job. That’s about it.October 31, 2017 at 8:38 pm #116037

Friends, I’m Sharon and I’ve lived my entire life in the Los Angeles metro area. I’ve lived in the city, at the beach, and now in the suburbs. I’m a retired lawyer and part-time freelance writer. I painted in oils in high school and studied art history at UCLA.
Four years ago, when I retired from the practice of law, I started taking drawing and painting classes at a local community college. I love drawing with graphite, pen and ink, and colored pencils. I like watercolor, but need to focus on improving my skills.
I’ve been fortunate to travel a lot, including to many parts of the US and Canada. Vancouver and Vancouver Island, Portland, and Seattle are among my favorites (hello doodlewashers from those places).
I love the outdoors and nature, road trips to national and state parks, hiking, the ocean, writing, poetry, music, and of course, art. I’m married to a software designer and have 2 grown children. I’m a product of the clueless ’50s and the mind-blowing ’60s. I guess that makes me an aging boomer with a hippie heart.November 3, 2017 at 9:28 am #118675Kate PowellParticipant@kate-powell

Howdy, fellow ‘aging boomer with a hippe heart’! Anyone who knows who Dobie Gillis is, is all right by me, lol. I’m glad you joined in the introductions. Elizabeth had a great idea!November 3, 2017 at 4:24 pm #119564Anonymous
