Hi Ro, you see that you can't save you from me... I always find you wherever you are... by thinking and also by your travels that you agree with me... I'm happy being there because I know that you wanted me to be here this very long ago... but you see I am here and it pleases me to discover other wonderful people... I wish you a beautiful day and weekend approaching fast… Hugs, Lucie bye

Well it's pretty good - I would try and follow Michaels' advice - if you do that it might be really quite nifty (might get a fairly dramatic light effect!). As for wiping it depends if you need the canvas/support - I have around 200 paintings in the garage!!! so I can't justify buying new canvases - I just white one over (gesso), but it's preferable to keep everyhting if you can!

That's okay Roena, I miss stuff all the time!  Thanks for accepting now!

At 20:55 on June 8, 2016, Jon Main said…

Sounds good! Haven't been sailing since 2011 - great pity - best days of my life!!! Well, Michaels's given some ideas - good stuff!

At 3:53 on June 5, 2016, Jon Main said…

I agree, Roena :)

At 19:24 on June 4, 2016, Jon Main said…

Well, it was a great experience as well - apinting to treasure for you! - we're very fortunate to have Michael -doing it for free too!!!! - be sure to save his comments to file, there're not many teachers that can articulate like him!

Saving Oil Paint

Posted on September 15, 2013 at 10:55 18 Comments

Saving oil paint is always on the oil artist mind. (my opinion)

Everyone has heard how well putting paint in the freezer works, and I did that successfully for years.  Living in a motor home with a small freezer made that no longer work for me too well.

Next I heard about paint under water.  Surprisingly it works, and I did not need to refrigerate. I have some small Carmex Lip Gloss (stuff)  (the jar is 1.25" wide and 1" tall--small).  I can scrape up my little dabs and wipe…
