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

You are welcome for the simple and delicious recipe Marcia. Prep time for making the bundles is nearly as long as the cook time honestly, it is a lot of cutting stuff up and rolling. Wifey and I bought the ingredients we were missing and are going to make them for as a side dish with dinner tonight. As Becca noted, the blues tend to be less good under portraits over time, but bright oranges or reds are very nice indeed. Mary Klein does red as her grounds in Casein, it really adds lots of visual interest when it shows through areas of layers over it.

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

Mark, I understand your anxiety...hope the MRI and follow up are soon...I do hate waiting too...they have lasers now which are much more agile than scalpels ever were and docs who also use robots that are more stable than any human hand...I think when you get all the info you will be much better...and best wishes here for a positive outcome...

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

Delo...they should pack those ingredients preassembled...lol...and yes, personal experience with the blues and portraits...argh...live and learn...and for some reason I do prefer red, but it is tricky laying down those colours on it...they look completely different than on the palette...it boils down to a matter of faith...

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

Hey Mark, my sister had a double mastectomy back in January (luckily she is in otherwise remarkably good health and has good insurance from being a teacher so was able to have both the surgery and the reconstructive surgery right away), they also found a tumor on her neck. It turned out to be benign, but could turn cancerous, so the Dr wants to have it removed, now that her other treatments are over with. It is all pretty scary until it is truly over and done with. The <<<Healing Vibes>>> from us all here at the Oily Rag works miracles though, you know!

I think I posted this before, but it was the end of May, so some of you may have missed it:

Marcia..nicely done...the VW is great and the illusion of depth in the piece is grand..

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

Marcia, it looks great, and thanks for showing us the finished painting!

Becca, the only time I use blue in a portrait is in eyes or clothing, but I love the idea of using warm colors like cadmium orange in with skin tones. I got a start on a painting of my two babies yesterday, and I'm looking forward to putting color into it - right now I'm still working on the drawing.

Mark, getting MRIs is no fun at all - I hope and pray that the neck bump can be removed easily, and with little recovery time.

Delo, nice to see you back again! That is one mouthwatering recipe you've shared - I wish I could eat it, but I could make it for my husband and take a bite or two of it.

Annie, you too! That class you're taking must be really good, and I can hardly wait to see some of the work you've been doing!

Nancy, I use blues in the skintones regularly...but as a toned canvas, not...look forward to seeing your new painting..

I have my new filter in my air purifier...now only need inspiration, and time to at on it...let me add, that filter weighed a ton and was a major act changing it out...

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

Becca, Birthday Wishes!

Annie, who's your landscape teacher? Class sounds wonderful.
I've been finishing yesterday and continue today a big landscape from last summer. Finally I have found a way to finish a painting: just finishing it and not trying something what I can't do! As simple as that.

Marcia, love your painting! Well done!

Mark, that is serious if the nerves are in the area. I hope it resolves by operating.

Delo, hi!

Nancy, hi!
