Nope. Last time I decided to take up an art I quit my job and devoted all my time and money to learning and looking and making art. After five years I had begun to get the hang of the basics and had to quit.
At this stage of my life I am content to let the masters do the creating and limit my tinkering to "collaging" (rather than layering - cuz I don't do fumes on top of fumes).
I will be interested to see who shows up here to answer your - um - demonic query!!!
