You may not like my New Year resolution.  Besides getting 30 pounds of weight off of this old body, I need to ween myself from the computer.  So, my resolution is to spend less time on the computer (an addiction) and more time in the studio.

Happy New Year to everyone!  May it be a productive years with an abundance of beautiful artwork.  May it also be a happy and healthy year.

Welcome aboard, Betty.  We are pleased to have you join us and we look forward to viewing your work.  This is a good place to learn.    There will be a new thread started tonight or tomorrow with new reference photos.  You can paint the photos exactly or just use them for a starting point and create whatever comes to mind using that theme.  Looking forward to seeing your work in the new year.

Hi all For those who are curious about the 1% I'm not sure how this story will evolve yet,I will say that I'm following the fiscal cliff debacle and all that it implies and how my political beliefs will influence the story

Welcome Betty.  I too had quit painting back in the 70's.  I didn't realize how much I had forgot and how much the techniques had changed.  You will like it here the people are great and have helped me improve my art tremendously.  I will be putting up the new year challenge some time before mid night and I hope you find something you just have to paint.

Well Fred I don't care if you lean to the left or the right things don't look good and its not just one party either they are both to carry this blame.

Your right Geri, I need to look at my story in a different light and think in a more humorous mode

Happy New Year to everyone.

Geri has posted our new Challenge for January, but he got the dreaded "moderator needs to review" message. I have messaged Courtney but it IS New Year's Eve. - - if she happens to be watching her messages, it will go up - otherwise we may not be able to see it until Wednesday.

I have started the 2013 challengeChatter thread so let's all start of the new year with the new thread.

Holly

C & C always welcomed and encouraged.

Yea, thanks Holly! Hang in there Geri we have a whole month. Happy New Year everyone may we all get arty and have a painting marathon all year. Welcome Betty glad you are joining us!, Fred you have been really busy over Christmas and I love them all. Those rocks are so much like Marsha's photo it is uncanny. Love all the Mars ones and it is good to see the still is still going. My camera is broken so am waiting for a new one which is due to come in on Thursday. Hope it takes as good ones as my old cannon. I have dropped and banged the old one on years of travels but it took a curious Curly One to break the door for the batteries. It held on for a while but gave up the ghost over Christmas :( I am hoping to get one more of Marsha's done but may not be able to send a photo until later. Thanks for all the great refs this month Marsha.

Jen C & C's always welcome

Betty, welcome to our group! This is a wonderful place to be to reacquaint yourself with oils and learn new techniques. My background is similar to yours in that my occassional classes over the years were at a local museum. Now I'm painting regularly as part of this group and it's both rewarding and educational. Lovely people here!
