Wow, I've been painting straight through since 8:00am on this one piece (and last night I had thought that I was almost done, lol!!!). But I've finally finished a big commission - yay!!!

So tomorrow you can expect me to be working hard on some brand new originals! I can't wait to get some of these ideas out of my head, and onto canvas. I almost feel like starting tonight..... I am a PAINTING MACHINE!!!!!!!! AAAHHH!!!!

Um, okay - maybe I need a little sleep.....

Jasmine the machine? Hmm... a little strange. All-in-all, you rule and I can't wait to start talking to you again. I have been dormant. Not anymore ;)

Congrats on finishing your piece!! I worked four hours on a new one of mine before my back kinked up....I'm a little silly, I work without a chair, hunched over the table. ;)

it's funny, I was an oil painter for a long time, and started painting with acrylics a few years ago, and more and more recently especially, have been amazed at some of the flexibility and amazing things that acrylic can do in my own work, especially in the thin layering and ... I still love oil of course, but am loving acrylic as well for different reasons.

Lately, with some of my new work in acrylic on wood especially, although of course the style is completely different, I thought of your work, especially your play on light and shadow. Hard to explain, it's mostly a comment on how you use the medium ... and you seem to be finding that as you push the envelope, there really isn't a barrier there. It's seems pretty limitless to some degree.

That is wonderful to hear! Too many of my oil painting friends (and professors) always tried to shy me away from acrylics, complaining that they were too "limiting"!

Hey Jasmine! I wish I were a machine like you. I have a hard time finding the time.
