Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

HI all,

I just received a present from a friend, she saw it on holiday at an exhibition and just knew it was for me!

So, is kiting a rich vain from which artists can draw inspiration?

Lets see what else is out there.

pgibble on the "old" forum
I fully appreciate the ability of trees to attract kites. They have special powers that way.

This one, in Steve's post hangs above our bed

That shot doesn't do it justice, interest is added to it since the painting extends onto the mat in areas, it's a thick 3 layer mat so it gives a very 3 dimensional effect. Very soft and cool hues, nice and relaxing. I've always liked watercolors and this one is big, about three feet tall. They were asking a bit much IMO since it is just a print but when we went back a couple hours later she automatically dropped the price knowing it was going to an appreciative home  Smiley
