Some beautiful flowers brighten up a dull day at Ropley Station on the Mid Hants Railway!” The Midhants Railway, in the South of England, is otherwise known as the "Watercress Line." It is very popular with local tourists and day trippers who love to ride the trains which are hauled by some beautiful old preserved steam locomotives.

  5. The view from my brother's front garden at Livefoods UK in Rooksbridge, Somerset, in the South of England. You can check out the Livefoods UK facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/livefood/ The pond, surrounded by flowers, contains some nice koi and it is set against a backdrop of beautiful Somerset countryside and farmland on a sunny day in early summer.

    I am not planning to get into cat photography in any big way. Just an album snap shots of the odd cat or two!
  7. Just a few photos that were taken in and around the Hogmoor Inclosure in Whitehill, Hampshire in the South of England. artfreaks.com needs a lot of new content, (among other things,) in order to regain any semblance of the search engine rankings which the site used to enjoy years ago. Well... The photography in this album is nothing special - just random snapshots that I took on my cellphone. But I pay enough every month for the server on which this site runs, so I just decided to upload my content to my site - not someone else's... I am sure that Facebook can manage without it!!
  8. Work sucks but being out of a job or without work, (if you are self-employed,) sucks even more...
  9. Please feel free to take eight years to respond - as long as you come back to artfreak.com some day. We miss you!
  10. Have you got any news on the book for us yet, Eduardo? So what have you been up too lately?
  11. It's a very moving poem. I hope that things worked out OK for you and your two friends!

    Nice photo, Jim!
  13. Wow! I didn't realise that you can get premium quality soft pastels on Amazon.com...!! I like Amazon. I have only really ever bought books from them, in the past... I've never had a problem. Those books that I have bought from them have always been delivered on time - (or, very often, in advance of the estimated delivery date) - and in perfect condition. Also, as an affiliate, they have always been very good to me... Even when artfreaks.com had been suffering and referrals dropped to nothing from one month to the next, they never even hinted at terminating our agreement. So yes, I like Amazon! And I am very pleased to see that aside from the Schmingke Soft Pastels and the beautifully boxed sets of Sennelier Soft Pastels that I referred to in the previous post to this topic, I can even order my all-time favourite soft pastels from them... Unison Soft Pastels Unison is a true soft pastel. Very nice to work with. But what I like the most is the super vibrancy of some of their colours... Some of them even seem to have an almost fluorescent glow! The company that makes Unison Soft Pastels is a fairly small enterprise and it is based in the UK. If I remember correctly, I first came across their wonderful pastels in an art shop in the city of Bruges. I have also seen them in Victoria B.C., Canada so they do seem to be exporting them around the world. And, of course, you can always get hold of them at Amazon.com! You can check out the Unison Colour website here: https://www.unisoncolour.com/about-us/
  14. There's a crack on his back, running almost down to the crack of his arse...
  15. Catch 22, The Choir Boys and, of course, Lord of the Rings are three more of the unforgettable books that I have read in my life. All of these are due for a re-read when I get old and retired - and I have the time... (Or, before - if I ever master the art of speed reading!!)
  16. Hi Edwardo! When were you last on artfreaks.com?

    It's time to pay us a visit!!

  17. The camerawoman behind the camera! artfreaks.com member Chai, is now a very busy camerawoman... She leads a rather hectic life and her work takes her all around the world. Chai was the camerawoman behind the Youtube clip below. This one is hot off the press from Hong Kong - and now, she tells me that she is already in Malaga!! Apparently, this is a Youtube show about the Fintech Finance Payments Race: ‘Round the World 2019. It's mostly what they call "corporate advertainment", apparently... Four contestants, each with the same budget have to make it around the world using only ONE payment method for everything; cash, card, mobile payment or cryptocurrencies. Chai is filming one of the contestants here, in Hong Kong - and the pair of them seem to have been having a wonderful time!!
  18. 2005!! Now that's a blast from the past! Back in the good old days when artfreaks.com was actually doing quite well... I have just been clearing out some old guff and a load of old spam from the forums - which was posted years ago when I was busy with my day job and I just didn't have the time to deal with it. This inane post should have gone the same way but I am a sentimental old fellow and I just couldn't bring myself to erase this little bit of internet history!!
  19. 'Any update on those courses? Please let me know if you are planning to run a workshop or art course for soft pastels? Thanks! And keep up the good work!!
  20. Come back, Mylap!! It's time to post an update on your Manila art workshops for kids!! How about some photos too?!

    selling artwork

    If anyone is actually making any money out of selling their art - and especially if they are making a living at it, then I would love to hear from you! Personally, I just do it for fun. But, then again, it would be rather nice to get a little bit of beer money for all of my efforts!!
  22. It's good to see that your blogspot blog is still going. Interesting stuff! Don't forget to drop by here from time to time too. We miss you!!
