Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... January 2019

Yes Mark...asses honestly was the only term I could think of that wouldn't be censored here...so there you go....read between the lines...and I have a long list of people who I could attach those terms to...ha.

Hi Annie..sorry you aren't feeling well...neither am I so I rescheduled the dental appointment...think this is my first 'sickness' in several years...and not certain what it is...is mild really so hoping it is short-lived...

My walnut oil arrived this afternoon!!!...not sure when it will go into use, but no doubt soon, depending on the intrusion of other things...works best to paint in the evenings...

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... January 2019

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

Becca, glad the walnut oil finally made it.

Annie, I hope you are getting over whatever is ailing you. Seems there is something going around here, and I'll be lucky not to catch it.

I finished the unfinished painting yesterday, and let the client know it will ship by the end of the month. Her husband's birthday is in February, so I got back to it just in time. I have a nocturne to start next.
Hiking group this morning and an art business class this evening with a few other things sprinkled in between, so painting will wait a day.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... January 2019

Becca, thanks for the get well wishes and same to you. I hope you don't have the same thing - my whatever-it-is seems odd in that there are a lot of ups (oh good, this is finally over) and downs (whoops, no it's not). Congrats on receiving your walnut oil. I really like it; it's more slippery than linseed, although be forewarned, it takes longer to dry.

Marcia, thanks and I hope you manage to avoid this bug. Congrats on finishing your painting. FYI, it it's at all wet when you need to ship it, Krylon Quick Dry is a great product that accellerates oxidation. It can leave a glossy finish. Have fun on the hike.

Best wishes on getting some painting done to everyone.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... January 2019

Mosc, I am so hopelessly jealous of you! Please post pics. Granada does indeed have art supply stores, just google it, and you'll get a map and everything.

Hike was called off because there was heavy fog between us and our destination, and accidents reported. I have been meaning to hike in the hills behind my house, maybe today's the day. If I go now, I will have tome to paint when I get back. Or take a nap.

Is it supposed to be kitschy? Because I think it is rather pretty. Pretty and kitschy.
