Re: Grouping of trolls

Actually I like the idea of adapting the collective noun for crows...a murder of crows.

I rather like the sound of A Murder Of Trolls. :lol:

Like I said "the few of us who are actually able and willing to do a good job end up supporting the remaining majority of talentless leeches. And this happens at all levels of society, from quarry workers to factory workers,...

Re: Anyone here paint? As in Art that is !

Thanks for that mate! Some nice works there. Different to what I want to do, but I like the opportunities collage presents to make social/political critiques. I also am not very good at drawing so abstract and impressionism is my direction too :-). With that (especially impressionism) you can be pre...

Re: Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) - big changes coming -

Anyone here paint? As in Art that is !

Just decided after years of photography I have want to make the leap into painting. I have some art theory and history education but not a lot of practical painting training. I was going to try to educate myself as I have plenty of ideas but I wondered if anyone else has gone down this path and has ...
