    Thank you for adding your work to “A Place to Start”. I see you already have some groups. Others you might also try Layered Up, Speaking Out, All things Poetic, Artistic, Philosophical, and Freedom in Words and Art.
    Also see our forum on Groups for Traditional and Modern Arts—Drawing, Painting, Sketching, Acrylics and More.

  • Thanks Corri, I don’t want to stop putting my stuff in your group because it’s such a warm friendly place but I have to put my stuff in other groups at the same time because I have limited computer time.

    Michael…no problem. Just be sure to post a note saying when you really want some new ideas for groups. :) We got rid of the rule that ours has to be first, and we love to see your work in the group. However, we concentrate on giving most of the suggestions to work with few or no groups. This one is really stunning, by the way. Have a great day!

  • Thanks Corri, really hitting the limit for the groups but if you know of a border collie group I’d be interested.
