Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... October 2018

I think all the solvents are tired of it, too.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... October 2018

I don't read them, so I can't really say, but I do find Arttreehouse's Biobased Artist Thinner intriguing. I could sure use a bit if thinning!

Seriously, I think I want to try it.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... October 2018

Sid, looks like a meeting of the minds between you and Molly. Love the photo of Snoopy - so cute! There really is something about Siamese. Their personalities are so human-like.

Becca, those are lovely cat paintings! I wonder if there's some way you could start taking commissions on similar works...presuming that's something that would interest you.

Derek, cute too. I guess we all ought to be resigned to solvent threads, as there doesn't really seem to be any absolute certainties about them at this point and it's hard for a lay person to interpret all the differing info. I'm thinking I may avoid them for a while, but I'd sure like to find one that just does what I need (esp. laying down a preliminary wash) but that I don't need to worry about.

Jess, Happy (Belated?) B-day!

I will try to contain my enthusiasm and just use it with my paints.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... October 2018

Jessica, I was just catching up and - did I miss your birthday? Forgive me, and have the happiest one possible!!!

Sid, I love the cats. My mother told me that I didn't say anything for the first three years of my life, but then she was startled by my standing at the screen door and seeing a dog chase a cat. My first words fell out of me then: "Dog, you get away from my cat!" Mom thought she would faint...These days I love all kinds of animals...
