My first post.

Hi everyone, as you can see, this is my first posting and I'm not really sure if I'm doing it right but here it goes.
I wanted to create this blog so as to be able to show every and anyone who cares, my progress as an artist. Not that I am an artist, but I'll just use the term so as not to confuse people. I consider an artist as being someone who is really creative and innovative in the arts. To me only GOD Almighty is an artist, and everyone else just tries to copy him. I mean, just look at what He created. We cannot even compare ourselves to Him.
But for now I'll just gradually post pictures of my drawings and paintings, both past and a little more recent ones, and hope that you will make comments about what you think. I'm hoping one day I can retire from my present day job and dedicate myself to what I should have started doing 15 or 20 years ago, the visual arts.

This here is an attempt of a watercolour portrait of my daughter Paulina which I did a couple of years ago. I find watercolour a very challenging medium but I absolutely love it and I hope one day I'll be able to do nice and loose watercolours, such as the ones I admire which are done by more professional artists, unlike myself.
This weekend promises to be nice and sunny so I'm going to try and get outdoors to do some painting. Hopefully it'll be something nice which I'll be able to post here afterwards.
