At the present moment I am painting with acrylics due to easy clean up and the fact that I am tad wary of having turpentine in the room with the gas fireplace. Although that may change as I'd really like to complete the oils I began earlier this year.
Kim mentioned something about favorite brushes and so here is mine. I don't know why but I love to paint with it and tend to use it even when I should search out a smaller or flatter bristle.
I began layering Prussian Blue (love that color), two coats, and purple one coat onto this canvas. For each layer, I wiped some paint off with a rag. It looks much darker in real life. I am going to attempt something with it, which I wont reveal yet as it may not work out. I won't know till I try it.
Meanwhile, Mom seems to be eating better. She is staying in bed much longer however. She was up on the couch only two hours y'day with a nap in between. I am going out to get my hair cut and do some errands. She has her lifeline button. Thanks for everyone's kind words and concern. Hugs, Suki
