Christopher, do you have any thoughts about the interaction between water soluable oils and acrylic grounds? Thanks for posting your interesting article. JH

Yup, I'll take the bait. Hi Juliana and Gerone. I'm a painter also and Gerone I hear you....I love the process's the marketing thats killing me! We just returned from the Danville Festival, our first time and I'm beat!

I'd be up for about anything to break the ice with all of us. I know this is going to seem critical of our particular genus (painters that is); but we tend to think everyone else in the art world is so exceptionally deep that you might as well stick to those fantasy felt posters with marker-colored unicorns. Believe it or not, I just like to paint stuff and I belong to this surreptitious cult that thinks everyone else is probably the same. I think I paint because I truly enjoy the process, the smells, the messes, and the sense that there is something “made” when I am done: preferably something I want to look at. For those that like to use markers on felt posters, please accept my apology; that actually looks pretty fun.

Anyway, I had to look up NaNoWriMo. That sounds so cool, Juliana! Is this something you do every year? 50,000 words in one month is incredible; you must have very strong fingers after that much typing.

Gerone, How brave of you to go out on the limb. I ask myself that question every day, sometimes several times a day . . . not sure where this is leading, but I see there are 10 of us in this group, so we may as well DO something. How about a meet and greet kind of thing; at a cafe or something. I don't know about you, but painters tend to be solitary types, yet I'd be up for whatever. I'm a Nanowrimo writer and it's fun to meet up at cafes with laptops in hand. I'm curious to know who we (painters) are. Anyone else taking the bait?
