In Styles Of Art
In my youth when I really wanted to be an artist, I felt like I failed all the time. Tempura paint is the liquid equivalent of crayons, and that's what the school provided for art class. No wonder I thought I couldn't make art! I was so excited to find Pete's YouTube because I felt validated. I started to show my art (what little there is) to other people. And some of them loved it! There is so much emphasis on kids and teens to make As in the "real" subjects. At least my elementary schools believed in time for art. They also got me started on music, which no one in my family was prepared to do. It's a shame the arts are being abandoned by so many school districts. Here's hoping for a revival.

In Welcome!
The week had some distractions I wasn't expecting and one that I was expecting--LOL--so I just got to visit the site today. Oh, I love your "art for sale" page! I couldn't resist! My self introduction: Regina Duke is my romance and fiction pen-name. My real name is Linda White. When I discovered Pete's YouTube channel, I was inspired to begin working on my art again. My main "artistic endeavors" are my novels (I paint with words, I guess, but I write to entertain). I look forward to chatting with other fans of Illustrations by Pete! I have learned through indie publishing that success (in a monetary sense) is never guaranteed, so we should pursue what we love. I love telling stories, creating worlds for people to get lost in. Having figured this out, I can know enjoy my pen-and-ink artwork without being consumed by the pursuit of profit. Pete is a wonderful inspiration, and now I have a nice place where I can come chat and access his art! I answer to Linda and Regina equally. Nice to meet you all.
