Hello Tigers. Today is Friday so I put this day aside for painting. I know...I went to the beach this morning with my friends' little girl, but my friend had a Dr.'s appointment and needed help. So, here's is what I accomplished today. I am building up the painting. I have to be honest with you, I'm not as patient as I use to be when using watercolor! It is an arduous process of layering the paint, and this is a very large painting. I am losing patience and I need to stop. Watercolor use to be my favorite medium to work in but now I prefer only oils. The only reason that I even worked in watercolors is because of the convenience of the paint. When working with oils, you must have space, ventilation and an area that is safe. You can't drop oil paint on a wood floor or carpet. Well, I am off to meet my friends for dinner down in Fort Lauderdale. I had a great day so far...it will only get better with good friends and great food. Love you guys, Ms. B.
