I’m still a bit new here so I don’t know quite how everything works, but I’ve recently found myself a bit upset by something that probably happens all the time!  Two people whom I’ve been watching here and who were making regular contributions, disappeared!  Their names are stricken through everywhere they posted, their memberships are no longer active.  Well of course that happens but still to me it’s a bit of a shock!  I really liked all their contributions, the photos they posted … I was always looking forward to whatever of theirs they were willing to share next.  So I’m sad to see they’re here no more!  I wonder what happened but because they’re not here I can’t ask them!  And it’s too late now for me to say how much I loved their contributions here.   Anyways: so I want to say to the people whom I’m watching who are still here that I really appreciate them and their work, even if I don’t always get to say it!  Your photo, your drawing, your painting … I just love looking at it, at the end of every day when I come online and take a peek or few here, they make my day, every day!  So just know, in case you’re thinking of leaving, that you’re appreciated!  Leave if you must but at least know that before you leave.

Willem van der Merwe
South Africa
I was born in 1972, Pretoria, South Africa. I started painting and drawing at the age of 5. I stopped doing that for a while to study some other fields, but recently I've been getting back into it. I love wildlife and nature but I also paint or draw people. I also paint and draw fantasy creatures or scenes, as well as extinct animals.

Thank you
You have awesome work and good that you're highlighting prehistoric mammals. We got 65 million years worth of post-Cretaceous evolutionary history to display! Where are you published?
