Hi there, I used to pain mural when I was a bit younger, I found it to be very hard work physically so only paint on large canvases now, its not really that difficult to do murals just seriously exhausting. There are lots of folk doing it are you in the USA?

No...I wish ! I work as a mobile phlebotomist. The art work is my passion ;) !

What is a phlebotomist? So glad you , love art..blessings x
Stacy Coleman - Over 30 days ago
It's a person that draws blood from the veins in the forearm. The blood can be tested for how well the heart or kidneys are functioning for example. A count of the red an white blood cells ,almost any disorders or infections can be identified through the blood. There's diseases ...chemistry..cytology to find cells of cancer in the body in blood. The list goes on a on. If you were ever sick or just needed a check up/physical. ... your doctor ordered labs. You had your blood drawn by a phlebotomist for clinical testing.

Wow! Stacy, thanks for enlightening me, one learns something new every day, so are you on freelanced.com for the art? Although I am an artist, it was not my first calling, but be that as it may, its what I do now, one has to make a commitment and do it full time if one wants to get anywhere, because it takes years to get to any decent level, it is not as easy as it looks... I have the utmost repect for artists who can paint realistic art.. infact to me, all art is good, but my preference is realistic, impressionistic art, as I know from my own experience the attention to detail, obsevance, and skill it takes to achieve. And I still have such along way to go....blessings

I'm on this website to interact with other artist an to be inspired by other artist that actually draw or paint by hand. Not by computer. ....sorry I'm old fashioned. I love seeing other works of art....an having a dialog. Sometimes I have a dry spell where I don't draw for months and then I look through this freelance.com site .....a then I'm back to drawing again. I know what you mean about details. For me it's an obsession, I can get lost for hours or in the zone when I'm drawing. ...it's like a therapy session for myself. Even though I'm self taught there's so much more to learn ! Do you earn your living full-time as a artist?

Yes, I do sell my wildlife paintings but do have slow periods, but I also need a break at times, I am preparing for another big cat painting and I have three unfinished "spiritual" paintings that I started and have not finished, I tend to start pai ting because I see them in my mind, and rush to get the concept on the canvas and then struggle to finish them, I know its strange, but true I don't know why I have that habit, drives me nuts..lol..keep up the beautiful drawing..blessings
