Hello!

New here the past month.  Just looking around at some fine art. 

So far have uploaded some 40+ of my own.

Kind of hard to find my way around, but that's OK because I look forward to the challenge.

All the best,

Robert Tracy

Great to see you in the forums today (and on the front page of the site for today's outstanding Art of the Day!)

If you have any questions about where to find things, etc, just let us know!

Huge cheers,

Hi Robert, welcome!
Glad you're joining us on the forums.
Your work is wonderful. My favorites are your wife's portrait with the door chain and "Two girls".
Congratulations on Art of the Day; you're off to a great start.

Thank you Gillie.

I've got lots of questions, so will take you up on your kind suggestion on where to find things, etc.

Again, thank you for the welcome.

Best wishes,

Robert

GreenBiscuit,

Thank you for the warm welcome.  And the not on my AOTD.  On the latter, I have no idea how that happened.

I accept your invitation to the Coffee Talk, but I'm very slow at chats, and will probably not be able to say much.  But will give it a try.

Thanks again,

Robert

Dear Vfem,

Thank you.

And you all do seem so friendly. 

Still, bear with me as I find my way.

Thanks again,

I can tell you exactly how you ended up as this week's Art of the Day. When you joined, we were really inspired by your graphite work and actually crafted this week's theme around it. Gorgeous stuff!

What an honor!  Again I say I had no idea.  This inspires me to submit more of my pencil work.   But how can that be done?  As I understand it one is allowed only 9 or so in a particular catagory.  And I'm so disorganized that I don't see a way to do it as I think I've already submitted the maximum allowed.  These are in my personal collection but I have some that have been sold that are worth seeing, including one fine silverpoint that I expect would come under the catagory of drawings.

And thank you.

And you know what?  That drawing of "Same Girl" was purchased as a print by my Veterans Administration psychiatrist and framed to put in the room of his private practice.  He told me that one of his patients stopped on her way out and said "Dr. Nelson.  That's me!"  I don't know, but I'm guessing she saw her two personalities in that drawing.

By the way, I do have a total and permanent disability since 1992 for Comabt Post Traumatic Stess Disorder.  Has it stopped me in any way from doing my work?  No.  And I don't even believe it to this day that I was damaged in the head by my experiences in Vietnam.

Be that as it may, the drawing is really just a theme on what I wrote about it.  The comfort of staying inside and the urge to go out into the world.  The latter wins out in the end.  And I think it's a natural feminine vurtue for curiosity to win out.

Robert....are you talking about having a limit on the number of pieces you can have in each catagory or media in your portfolio? I never heard of that....I've got tons of stuff in mine...maybe you are thinking of the image hosting which is limited...in which case just get a free account on photobucket.com so you can put any image you want there, and copy the html and put it somewhere else....but downloading to your portfolio is simple, direct and as far as i've always known, limitless...am I wrong, Aime?

Robert, you will find a number of us here who have PTSD for a variety of reasons. Also many of us have serious debilitating, disabling mental illnesses. I think you will find kindred spirits here. You mentioned the comfort of staying inside ... those here who know me well can tell you that I've been a literal hermit for many years. I'm just starting to come out of that. It's exhiliarating, scary, and wonderful all at the same time. I think there's a tendency to lose many of your social skills after you've been a hermit for a long time ... I find that I'm feeling like a 5-year old on the playground who doesn't yet know how to play nicely with others without committing a variety of social gaffes, lol. I haven't crashed and burned yet, but there have been definite instances of thick smoke ......
