Woops! March roared in before any of us knew it. Hope you all are well and patiently awaiting Spring.

Things are warming up around here. Today it's 36F and tomorrow it's going up to about 45F, if my celcius to fahrenheit conversion is correct. Melting temperatures for sure!

Hi everyone! Back from my trip and I'm so sore. Discovered muscles I didn't know I had. We had a great time. Visited Dick Blick in Vegas and purchased some colorsoft colored pencils and had to resist the temptation to buy more.

Hi Everybody! I've been back from Australia for a week, but I've spent a lot of time readjusting. It's hard to leave summer and come back home to wet and cold. Smile I've got a canvas prepped so I should be back painting today! I'll post some of the paintings I did while in Australia soon.

Welcome back. It's been kind of slow here. Hope you are both rested and ready to pick up the paintbrush.

Judy

Sofie, I'm looking forward to seeing your next painting.

Judy, just working on swatches right now but as soon as I'm finished which may take a while. Smile

Happy birthday from Dale.

Sorry I have been away from the forum a lot. I am taking lessons on the weekend and painting whenever I can so I find the time slips by. I worked on getting some art ready to hang in one of the city libraries and I am working on a few more for another local show in May.

I will take some time to catch up on the latest paintings.

Miss you all

Dale

Just thought I'd say HI! to you all. We've been out of power for 11 days out of the last 2 weeks, so I haven't been able to keep up. Tons of snow here. Still lurking around and watching your great works. Hopefully, I'll be healed enough to get back to painting in about a month. Can hardly wait to get started again.

Thanks Dale! Nice to hear from you. Missed you too.

Hi Dayle! 11 days without power... that must be difficult. Hope your recovery goes well. Smile

Hi Judy. I hope you are enjoying the course as much as I am. And it does take up a lot of time - worthwhile still.

Hi everyone! I apologize but I don't think I'll be spending much time here anymore. We've built a great resource for people working in WSOs and I thank everyone for their contributions. I think we all can agree that Wet Canvas has more to offer. So I'll be over their mostly in the Water Mixable Oils forum. I'm also working on some color swatches and understanding color so I'm hanging out in the Color Theory and Mixing forum a lot.

For those that are not familiar with Wet Canvas the critique forum is fantastic for getting some really helpful critique that has helped be immensely in the past.

Take care and happy painting! Smile

Sorry to see you go, Janet. I had a quick look at Wet Canvas site just now, and didn't see a Water Mixable area, just Oil painting in general. Maybe it is covered in Watermedia. Or maybe I would need to join in order to see the forums. Or maybe I'm just having just one of those days.

Judy, we will miss you.   Please do drop by every once-in-a-while.   Thank you for all your work in helping to get this forum started.

As to Wet Canvas I recognize they have a lot of good stuff there, but the tone of many of the posts has turned me off.   At times the WMO forum seems more interested in how to get around the problems of using regular oils than how to use the "inferior" WMOs.   And many of the IMHO posts aren't very humble at all.   Too many people there are not tolerant of other peoples' opinions.   I find this forum (our forum) to be much more supportive and I cherish it for that.

Don't forget us Judy Sad.

Jim,

It is JANET who is leaving. You're stuck with me. I agree totally with you about WetCanvas, WSO, although there are some good things, like the course you and Dale and I are taking. they have a lot to offer, but I pretty much stay out of the WSO forum for the very reasons you stated.

Alan, As far as finding the WSO forum, it is buried someplace in the oil forum even though there was a great deal of protest about that. I just did not feel comfortable with the atmosphere or the traditional oil moderators that took over control of it. I'm glad you are both here and hope to continue withoyu for a long time.

Well, I go to the Wet Canvas Water Mixable Oils Forum and here. There is a lot more going on at WetCanvas, in general. Although, there doesn't seem to be more discussion of Water Mixable Oils there. Got to say that I'm a lot more comfortable here. The people are very nice here, and there is more just plain fun. See you over at WetCanvas Janet, and thanks for starting this Forum. Glad you are staying here Judy, and I look forward to seeing more and more of you guys.

Ooops Embarassed, sorry bout that Judy and Janet.   Must have been a senior moment Laughing.   La Société Des Solubles Extraordinaires has ordered me to write the following one hundred times:

Judy is not Janet, Judy is not Janet, Judy is not Janet, Judy is not Janet,
Judy is not Janet, Judy is not Janet, Judy is not Janet, .......................

I am sorry to see you go from here Janet. I understand what you say about resources at WetCanvas, but I feel that here - we know each other and each other's work.

I use both sites so apologize if some are seeing it in both places.

I mayhave been to busy to post here, but still feels like home to me.
