This is also beautiful Nora, I really like your bg and the way you do the glass. I recently got back into oil, have started using the water sol ones, as the turp was really bothering me. Wanted you to know that your roses in oil really make me want to paint as well as you. My mom wanted to call me Denise but her dad asked to name me after his sister who was still in Ireland.

Nora, I hope you come back to my blog because I can't figure out how to leave a comment on yours again. I wanted to share with you that regular Turpenoid is good to use as turps with no odor. The Odorless Turpenoid on the other hand is almost deadly for me. Another thing is that I have worn garden gloves to paint in for several years now but for the last 3 months I'm using "Gloves In A Bottle". It's wonderful and no more gloves. I apply it 3 or 4 times a day and even though I get so much oil paint on my hands, it washes right off. My hands are always dry and I can't feel the lotion. I had received a sample with an art order from one of the art stores, tried it and went out and bought 5 bottles. It's that good. . . . . Nora
