Hi! Every month on second Saturday in a sweet town near me they have a street fair. The town is Waynesville Ohio and they have art contest during the street fair. This month was a quick draw, we had three hours to paint or draw. I chose to paint and completed mine in plenty of time. I worked with my water miscible oils on a 8" x 10" canvas. I always frame them even though they are wet as I think they show better. Great news is I won People's Choice and First Place. Such a great day, I left the painting in a local gallery for the month. Next month is plein air and we have most of the day to paint, I'll be there. Here's my painting, a cute shop that just happened to have this bicycle in front with buckets of flowers attached,

I recently switched to Cobra water miscible oils. They are oils in every way but the linseed oil in them breaks down with water so they are soap and water clean up. I decided to try to paint healthier and make the switch. You need to stay out of the water if you use them, mixing them with water isn't a good idea as the water evaporates and they become sticky. They make linseed oil for them you can mix throughly into the paint to thin them. I plan to stay with them. I will keep you posted.
I donated a painting to the Mason Historical Society of their old fire truck Old Betsy. They auctioned it off at the ice cream social Tuesday night and all of the proceeds went to them, $660 , not bad. I am selling prints if you live in the area and you are interested let me know.
Good to see you!
