    Hey guys and gals. Well somewhere between there and here my PP was lost apparently. I was contacted by @jord001 as he was my paint pal. He informed me that it was sent on Dec1st as required but it didn't make it here or back to him:(. He sent me a pic of it and it's a great one of course. It's a Carolina Grim reaper. Great idea and thank you @jord001 for your great work.

    Well , after the 2 telegrams , fulfil internet formalities and pay the taxes to free my paintpal from customs to get it home , finally I have ......!!!!!!

    Another telegram , that say that I have to go in person anyway to the customs office to pick it up , where they will strip it a to see what it is , like if I was some kind of smuggler or similar. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:. I will have to explain again that is not something that I buy , or some expensive art piece that I want to sneak into the country avoiding taxes

    I HATE MAIL AND CUSTOMS HERE

    Today is ....Paintpal day !!!!!!

    Finally , I pick up my paintpal trapped in customs , and drive back home , planing what media will call "the customs massacre" , I found another that reach my home today whil I was in customs .

    So , today I have 2 painpals !!!!!!!!!!

    The first I wanto to share with you is the one from @beanpoleuk , is so amazing that I'm sure that the customs guy take it as a picture , what make things easy
    He do his own Calyboard , something that I have to try , to paint it , the level of detail make my head hurt just to think in how he did it , and plus of the technical skills is sooooo beautiful , worth all the effort to get it and more

    Thanks a lot Bean for the amazing dedication you put on this just for me


    ........

    The one I found when I reach home is from the great @Micha der Wolf , I'm still stunt by it , the theme he choose is argentinian dance called Tango , so fit me great , and put all his amazing skills on it , and the level of detail and technique is superb , the faces are portraits smaller than my thumbnail size (I can't do this noteven in A4 size) , the deep of field effect he achieve blow my mind

    001.jpg

    Thanks a lot Micha , I can't believe your technique even looking at it in person


    ....

    Today is a Happy Day , I love Paintpals !!!

    Sorry gang, i've been a little slack in keeping this updated, life threw a wagon of lemons at me that have had me distracted.........

    Thats an amazing piece Jordo, Here's hoping that yours will physically land at some point.

    Congrats @Diegojavbau those two are a great addition to your collection.
    @Diegojavbau
    @frowan Frowan has posted up what he has sent to Jonas, as Jonas isnt well.....
    @JonasCalhoun Isnt feeling well, hopefully there has been some communication with his recipient.
    @Kamil
    @Lt4-396


    apparantly there are still a few unofficial paint pals still waiting to land, so the waiting game continues.

    Just to add one last data , so you can understand my hate to customs and the absurd that I have to face here , today when I pick it up , customs employee say to me that my "sworn declaration" of the package (content and value of the item , from where I pay taxes) was wrong.
    He say that I'm right when I say that the cost was 1 dolar , because is just mail and not something that I buy , but I forgot to include the "shipping cost" .
    Yes , he reffer that I have to include the cost that my paintpal pay for the delivery as a shipping cost , and pay taxes for it.

    Can you believe it ?

    That is why I send mine only as a letter , That way customs does not freak out and want to charge an arm and a leg to who it is going to.
