I can't paint with oils...


Okay, started playing with acrylics on canvas, which was really fun, but tried to switch over to oils and was banned from the art world for my atrocious attempts. I will have to drop oil for a bit and come back to it or I will end up surrendering paintbrushes. These are the acrylics...

Those are fantastic! You are so very VERY good!

BTW, knowing that you don't often wander into your friends pages and thus sometimes miss stuff, please click here. ;-)

You're right! I'll dig thru 20 posts and then forget to check again for months! I also forget to stop and comment after I read.
So cool to see this octopus traveled across the states and sitting in your house! :)

He chose an excellent perch ... right in my line of sight if I glance up from reading/knitting, and just above my most-played Malian CDs. :-)

I've sort of been totally stalking you for... a while now. I'm sorry. I have to finally come clean and be honest about it. I love, love, LOVE your art, and I think you're funny and smart as well.

And the fact that those are acrylic kills me every time I look at them. I can't do that with oils, much less the impossibility that are acrylics.

Thanks so much! If you can do anything with oils then I super envy you. I can't believe how different the colors are, the amount of transparency, and how much I rely on quick-drying. In fact, I work with a blow-dryer so that I can move forward faster!

Oh my gosh! I can't even imagine that! I tried buying those Golden "slow dry" acrylics, and even those dry way too fast for me.

Oils were tricky for me at first because I came to them after watercolor and acrylic, but now I love them because I can be super lazy with them. I even forgot to clean my brushes one night, but they were fine the next day!
