Sheryl, Loved that thread. That's quite an undertaking. You're doing a great job of it. PLEASE don't poison yourself. You're entertainment value alone would be a great loss. Hilarious!

Thank you, like I told Sharran, I'm about 90% pleased with this painting.... which is very high, for me!

Edited to add - who knows, Storm - I might be funnier with a little poison! Seriously, that's what they're pinning at least some of Van Gogh's insanity on - Cadmium Yellow. Originally, many of the oils were lead based, which doesn't mean much to those who don't gnaw on paintings, but for the artists it could be a real problem.

Hmm. Wonder if this explains Salvadore Dali's paintings and behavior as well as Jackson Pollack's. Blinking

Naw - paint is too expensive, I'm sure they found other substances to try.... Hilarious!

Hilarious! Well, I know neither one was a stranger to alcohol. It often seems that great artistry and substance abuse go hand in hand. Should we all take up a new vice to improve our handiwork????

Only 90%? I'd be 100% pleased - it's wonderful! Thumbs up I used to paint a long, long time ago (in high school!) and have often thought I'd like to try my hand at it again sometime. Looking at the photo of you holding the brush makes my wrist hurt just thinking about it and I'm not sure if I'd even be able to do it! Carpal Tunnel acts up occasionally and any kind of painting is usually a culprit. Sad

Deb, do you use the fabric wrist braces? I've thought about picking some up, I have a definite problem carpal tunnel too.

I think coping with it is much like what I do for my back - change positions often, raise and lower the painting, stand, sit, perch... I suppose it is all a matter of degree, though - yours might be much worse than mine.

Beading is my winter hobby. But with this darn weather being so hot and now getting stuck in the house with the AC on really hot days, I've got my beading out again. I've just started a bracelet for halloween. Here is a bracelet I made in Fla last winter.

Wow, that is very impressive. Do you do it on one of those bead 'looms' I've seen?

The one above is done in peyote stitch, just in your hand. This one is done on a loom.

Love the cat, lol.

I used to bead my stethoscopes when I had to 'sit' with a patient - never quite got it tight enough, so I would always rip it out, but it was quite enjoyable.

They are really beautiful, Pam. Love them both. I tip my hat to you. Where do you get your ideas from?

These two are mine own designs. I have a program on the computer Bead Creator Pro to create your own patterns. You choose the type of stitch you want and fill in the pattern with the colors you choose. You can also take any photo and make a chart from that also. And I surf the European beading blogs. They are so far ahead of us - just gorgeous bead work.
And there are quite a few monthly beading magazines and tons of books with instruction.
I have a group on yahoo for bead looming patterns also. I make patterns on the program and post them there for free. When I first started on the loom, it was so
hard to find any patterns.

God I just love that shell bracelet. WOW
I've never really done beading. I do cross stitch and have made some macrame jewelry and a few things. I did make Jen's wedding veil and put beads around the edge of it. Pretty simple nothing intricate. I have a few cross stitch kits that came with beads to add in but not anything like that.

Thanks. No, I haven't tried to sell anything. I just enjoy making them. This is a medicine bag I made a couple of winters ago. Took for-ever!

Wow, That's really pretty. I've never heard of a medicine bag. Is it for pills or herbs?
