Have you tried Macrium? The first time it runs, it takes a whole image and then does daily updates. SAved my bacon a few times.

Art - I paint/draw as much as I can in my spare time.
Spam hunting - I run a large forum that was once flooded with the s**t.
I coded my own website and am starting to learn python - early days yet.

Don't give up. Whatever happens try to live your life as much as possible as the way you'd like. Sod everyone else. You are you, and that should be enough.

Having reached menopause, I was finding I didn't have the energy to mask any more. I'm finding it harder and harder to make my invisible container around myself. I'm currently waiting for my report, and I don't hold out hopes for a definitive diagnosis as I'm an older woman. Sure the doctor said I h...

There's some awesome stuff here. This is a painting I haven't finished yet. I stopped painting on 5 years ago, but I think I'm going to pick it up again.

This is an interesting discussion. I had my first assessment just before Christmas and a full one last week. I'm 58 and have had years of practising masking. My report should be ready at the end of next week. While the Doctor said I had some traits, was OCD, he didn't think I had autism. I'm not sur...

Yeah, but with watercolor, the whole sheet of paper is glossed over with water before even painting, meaning that even the "white bits" aren't totally bare, untouched paper. Not always; there are so many ways of using water colours. Take Sargent for example. Yes, he used white gouache, bu...

That's a great start. Keep doing them and keep improving.

Here's one I did with felt tips outlined in ink, but this was after years of drawing.

I like some, in small doses. I had to visit a client and was put with their bookkeeper who played it all day long. She suffered from depression, and by the end of the week, I was screaming inside to get out of there. There are only so many songs about lost love and dead dogs one can take.

What a dumb ass school. Watercolour require you to leave paper to make white, but it can be part of the design; negative shapes are just as important as the object being painted.

Now saying that, white does tend to take on a smidgen of the colours surrounding it.

Yes if I'm using it for inspiration for a painting. Drives my family mad.

Get the book Art & Fear. It's short and pretty cheap. It should help you understand where you are with your art and what you need to do to continue to grow etc. Also joining an art forum is quite good for getting feedback, but you need to develop a thick skin. Artists, I've found, are pretty und...

Thanks. I do smile. I actually find taking selfies hilarious, but I was feeling serious when I posted, so chose a serious one. Might post a smiling one some other time.

Does spam hunting count? I admin another forum and before we had decent software put in, the bots were a pain. I got pretty good at hunting them down. Sometimes I miss the relentless chase; the current bunch are no challenge.
