My name is Skip and I'm 61 years old. I live with my wife and granddaughter in Maryland, USA very near the Maryland/Delaware border surrounded by farmland. Beautiful and peaceful .. can't ask for more. We have 3 Maine Coon cats (Jessie, Gordon & Tia), 1 rescued cat (Artemis) and a beautiful little Sheltie named Sassy. I've been interested in art and images for as long as I can remember. The images, colors, the stories behind them have always fascinated me. Of course I'm one of those people who can't draw a straight line with a ruler. That has always frustrated me. Then about 10 years ago I came across an online group that made name tags using a program called Paint Shop Pro. Using images by others I began to create tags and letters but that just made me want to do my own images even more. Then I came across Bryce and through Bryce I found Poser and then Vue. I was hooked. For the first time I can actually make my own images. The more I learn the more I realize I've only just scratched the surface of this wonderful world of art. Finding Renderosity was amazing. All these people creating art, providing ideas and help and such amazing images! Awesome images! Hopefully I'm learning and my art is getting better. A whole new world is opening up and I love it.
I'm a voracious reader. I read every day any time I have a few minutes available. I read for fun and because I love strong character driven stories. I read Science Fiction, Paranormal, Westerns, Fantasy, Romance, Mystery and pretty much everything in between. About the only things I don't read are biographies, history, reality. Reality is highly over rated and I much prefer fiction. (*S*)
