  • @jill Looking for new post for you. I know you are painting this summer. How is it going?

  • @jill Jill, I see we live relatively close and are painting similar spots. You should take a day at Naumkeag in Stockbridge. It is so beautiful there and they have a Plein art session on Thursdays.

    • Hi Kim! Yes, we are in the same area! I’m actually from Pittsfield originally, and still work on West Housatonic Street. We should get together sometime and paint, or even just chat paint, if you wanted. (no pressure, lol) I’ve actually haven’t yet brought my paints to Naumkeag (I’ve been a bit shy in the past on how public my plein air outings…[Read more]

      • I would love to have someone to share painting with; my family things everything is “fabulous” so I don’t really feel like I have the critique that I need to grown. I’ve not ever done plein air because I also tend to hide everything away except on sites like these where I hope to connect with like minded people. I’d love to paint together,…[Read more]

        • Of course, no worries! I have Reynauds (circulation disorder) so I don’t do much plein air myself once the temps go below 65 or so.

I know the family agreement situation myself, my parents and husband say everything “looks good!” lol. I tend to use…[Read more]

          • Sorry, just saw this. The beginning of school is very crazy busy. I haven’t picked up a brush in well over a week. Sad but the way it is. I hope I can establish a group of artist friends that will be my support and gauge as well. Right now, it’s really hard to truly know how I am progressing. I entered a piece in a exhibit for the National…[Read more]

          • Hey Jill!!! Did I see you are an artist participating in the 10X10 in February? I’m thinking about sending a piece. The one I posted, sideways, of the flower cart. Can you give me some feedback?? Merry Christmas!!!

            • Hi Kim! Yes! I’ve donated 2 pieces each year to the 10 x 10 event the last 2 years. I just saw the event page started up on Facebook, so I’ll be planning to do 2 more this coming year. You don’t have to do 2, but the pieces are easy enough, anything that when framed is 10 inches by 10 inches, or close enough. I’ve been able to order 10 x10 frames…[Read more]

  • @jill – Thanks for the info 🙂 Didn’t know the sizing can deteriorate with time… That explains why some really old maybe 12 ~ 13-year-old paper I have re-found in my stock was acting weird.

    I have brought my paper  2 ~ 3 months ago and the other sheet of paper I have used have seemed ok for now, done a little beating to one without my mop…[Read more]
