Even though many of my compositions have folklore underpinnings, I like it when people make up their own stories for them, too.

    I am not here to be political or argumentative, by the way. Nor am I on DU to be political. You are right, I mainly flog my work, and take quizzes and waste time with historical trivia.
    Have you ever considered writing and illustrating a book on it? I know of a guy who was interested in dark culture and things like death masks. He's an art history professor. He put out two coffee table books with mostly photographs.

    I haven't found a proper publisher for either work, so I've put the homeless little waifs out via blurb.

    I'd much rather paint than write, though. In fact, I paint daily and compulsively. I'm waiting right now for some canvas to dry that I primed earlier.

    which I didn't know existed has picked this post up to deride it, and heap it with scorn and derision, but it is driving traffic to my Etsy shop, so I just wanted to thank them. They won't let me register, though.

    Mexican art often features skeletons and bright colors but it's not to everyone's taste. I like your work and I think you'll do a lot better linking it to conservative forums than places like DU. CaliforniaPeggy and Skippy not withstanding, people here have the money to spend. GL.

    I was never very good at embroidery, except for cross stitching. Now, I can't do that without wearing reading glasses, and I don't really have time for it.


    I like the pillow. The design is not my kind of thing, but I like the colors and basic style.

    As a freelance artist, I've found liberals and conservatives to be pretty much the same with regard to spending on art. They both open their mouths more than their wallets.
    At this point I think that many have closed wallets. I started selling some of my excess collections on ebay last year, which was a good year. (I'm not a big seller, no store, no shipping overseas). But this year has been terrible. Other people selling there have communicated that it's been rough, with buyers often making the bids but not paying.

    I had a lovely little Herend china dish that was sold right away. Then I got a note from the winning bidder, after the close of the auction, that she just didn't feel like buying it. I reported her as they had already deducted the ebay commission from my account.

    Good luck to you, really like your works. And you've priced everything very reasonably. Glad to have you here.

    First, I take exception to the bolded above. There's only been one negative comment which is far from heaping scorn and derision.

    Second, I visited your Facebook page and looked at your work. I actually liked your paintings. Your needlework stuff is good too, but I'm just not a fan of needlework stuff.

    I know you guys like your monster vehicles.
    Kind of broad brush, don't you think? I agree with Flippy, I think the comments have been quite nice, especially when everyone's a critic these days.

    Oh my.

    The grandmother primitive here illustrates why it's good for people to lurk on a site for a while, getting familiar with its members and their individual styles first, before jumping to conclusions about them.

    Nobody could possibly be more of a prude, more reticent about sexual matters, than franksolich.

    <<<a good Catholic boy.

    If the grandmother primitive had been around a while, she would've seen that calling the primitives out on their hypocrisy was the purpose of my posting this thread.

    The primitives, many of whom are in their late 50s, their 60s, and their early 70s, invented the "sexual revolution" fifty or so years ago, causing serious damage and destruction to the social fabric.

    It was a big part of their lives, hopping around in the sack with everybody and anybody; with anything that moved.

    Well now, how come the primitives are so mum about the subject? How come they never describe their experiences, especially in the "let it all hang out" Lounge?

    In the absence of reminescences about it, one suspects it wasn't as great as they'd hoped it'd be.

    And that's what many of the DUmmies can't do. No problem.
