Thank you SF! It's been so long since I worked with oils. I just don't have the room because of the odor. One of the things I'm keeping in mind while I'm house hunting is the room to do my art :D

i know what you mean! the last time i painted with oils i didn't have nearly enough ventilation. i very nearly threw up. i think i'll leave oils alone for awhile! 

how's house hunting going? that's a very very important thing to have in a house...especially cause that's the way you make your living. it gives you an excuse to have a bigger house, too!

Oh the house hunting is driving me nuts. Just when you think you found something in your price range there's a major problem with the property. I sure hope something comes along by October. There is no way I'm staying here another year. And the rent will be well over 1500. It's a great apartment but the management is all about the mighty dollar

I wake up around 3am and can't get back to sleep! I start painting, and before you know it it's lunchtime...lol.

This is a lovely piece Cher, the colors work so beautifully together and you've done a lovely job in blending for smoothness. I also used to use a Hake brush or foam brushes for creating smoothness in my acrylics...do you use similar? Great work!!

Thank you, Beverly! I have used sponge brushes. But on this particular piece I used an assortment. I did quite a bit of it with a chip brush and a good amount of mixing white :)

Sponge brushes are under-rated aren't they...I remember using them for some of my acrylic paintings when I was experimenting with different technique's, and I really enjoyed them. I also used my beautiful "Hake" brush...a rabbit hair brush, so soft and it left almost no brush marks if I wanted it to look really smooth. :)

Reminds me of the inside of a sand-tornado, looking upwards towards the clear blue sky. Excellent piece!

this is one of the most beautiful paintings i've ever seen. is it still for sale? if i were a wealthy woman, i'd sure buy it!!!!!

how do you get acrylic paint to look so much like oil paint? (or does it? i don't really know that much about traditional media yet, but it looks to me very similar to an oil painting)
