Getting back on schedule

Sorry I have been slow posting and visiting other blogs. These last two week have been very busy and then I started a new blog with the desire to paint a small format realsitic oil everyday but I have been having trouble with the templates on this one and that one. My mind is not technically equipped. I accidentally deleted my Art Quotes but will get them back today. My intention of having two was to have this one for the larger and abstract work and the other for the smaller oils. The new blog is on my links. A Daily Effort.

I am excited about starting a new medium today Cera Colla. Hopefuly I will do it right and be able to post something by tomorrow. I am adding a link to this interesting medium.

Cera Colla looks quite interesting. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Golly Mary, making the Cera Colla sounds a bit hairy! But then you are familiar with encaustic so probably very able to it.

Like Robin, I am really looking forward to reading how you get on mixing it, and seeing you work with it.

Hope it goes well.

Thank you Robin and Lesley. I made four colors and so far they are nice and creamy. I will try using them tomorrow and hope to post. It was a little hairy the ammonia smelled all over.

That's terrific Mary! Your new blog is a great idea...I've been mulling over doing the same thing...separating my mini work from larger work.

Cera colla...I'll have to check out that info more carefully..sounds intriguing.
