Do a bit of reseatch and reinvent yourself...You have the skillsets...Utube has heaps of tutoring..!! I am doing a joib I never thought I would be really capable because I too looked to others and felt less. Build on what has been successful for you and take it up a few notches,,,I have been painting since 1969 on and off...More on later years, and I am still doing lessons....all the time.I actually got approached on here and asked to apply for a job because of my big portfolio and different work I do...I asked him..lol...I applied and got the job and it is a big creative and pushing me to learn as I go..You have done some great work and lots of clients, so pump up your portfolio ....feel what is your passion ,,,research, look at artworks etc for inspirtion , do some lessons and learning and you will feel like a young puppy again ok....Outwith the dinosaur ....three cheers for the puppy!! Keep me up todate with your new creations as I would be soo excited to see you sprout and grow and glowwithin...ok...Cheers Doug and have a fabulous day:))

p.s. put your email and contact info on your homepage here...as it truly works as people looking dont want the rigmarole of joining to speak to you, You give yourself much better options for availability to people out there looking for someone like you .....and no complications,,,,It works and another lady just told me so as I told her it works for me....

All messages are in Me....top right and arrow down....My account and over on the left...You could miss a job there too as that is where they come through ....just in case you don't know...Took me to lose a job before I found it..lol...Then I had a really good look and familarised myself with the software and site....Cheers

About Me:
Native Iowan, Doug Knutson, brings to life his Midwest surroundings in his landscapes, still life and wildlife paintings. Even as a youngster growing up in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Knutson knew he would devote his life to his artwork. Following graduation from Omaha Art School, he began his career as an illustrator in the Editorial Art Department of the Omaha World-Herald newspaper. After about 12 years at that position, Doug’s commercial art career took him to an Eastern Iowan illustration studio where he spent several years working for national clients.

Over the years he has completed illustrations for many clients including Abbey Press, Admiral, American Express, Apple Creek Publishing, Barton Beers, Bradford Exchange, Brown Publishing, Burger King, Christian Life Resources, Cracker...
