Cool Chat - April 2016

Good morning everyone!

We have an active forum lately.

Originally the hubby and I were hoping to hit the road yesterday but his medical supplies were shipped to the wrong place and now we need to wait for them to come here before we can leave. Oh well, fortunately we have plenty of time before we need to be at our next job. What's that saying about,"The best laid plans of mice and men"?

I have yet to start my self portrait #3, guess I should get going on it today.

Have a blessed day!

I like the saying "Nothing makes God laugh more than when man makes plans." Hope those meds show up soon.

Today I need to go to the Vet to pick up some pills for one of my dogs. Then to the bank to steal some money from our household budge. Then it is off to Hobby Lobby to use my 40% off coupon, then to Walmart to get some new clothes for the cruise I'm going on in 3 weeks (God Willing ).

After that I will be painting the rest of the day. I'm working on a Lily pad pond painting.

Happy April everyone.

I like your quote about God laughing @TerryCurley, when our plans are changed by circumstances I just see it as God fixing our errors in judgment! And I am sure he does laugh about it at times! Other times I see him doing one of these when dealing with me,

Terry, did you say you are stealing from the household budget to go to Hobby Lobby? you're my hero!

@dickhutchings, thank you for fixing my faux pas!

You mean we're supposed to budget our money and not spend it all on art supplies? Sheesh, I don't get it.

Your welcome Susan. I've been waiting for the date to change like a kid waiting for Christmas. Little things.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

After two years I still feel like it's Christmas every time I get art supplies.

This is such a fun thread.

I been and spent 200 today on acrylic materials and some canvas's I've not worked with acrylics before but I'm okay with watercolors so i'm hoping it's a little the same, doing research it seems acrylics are the least forgiving (dry times) out of oils - watercolors and acrylics!
I think I have everything I need to get started apart from Atelier Interactive Fast Medium/Fixer* which I'll be ordering tonight off ebay

Hi all,

Haven't been on but I'm back. Haven't painted lately either. So busy with college. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Just ordered some new supplies myself I love that Blick and Jerrys both now have $4.95 flat rate shipping. That's a blessing for sure!!

So has it been decided yet what the next exercise is going to be...(she says cringing, because she hates her self portrait) ??

Just finished...well, sort of...this mandala. I'm going to make a copy of it, then color the original. I have a faithful follower on Instagram who always says the nicest things about my art, so I'm sending this to him.
I'm still working on my elephant too...may finish everything but color tomorrow.
