    Just a hello to fellow painters!

    I just joined the forum. Just want to say hello to my fellow miniature painters out there. I noticed it was mentioned that the painter section is a little sparse. Well hopefully we can lighten things up a bit! I belong to another forum that is just about miniature painting, so if you want to know more about that, I'll let you in on it. It's a Yahoo forum for miniature artists. A lot of dollhouse painters don't know about the fine art miniatures out there. They are 1/6th scale but they will except the 1/12th scale as well. I've been entering those shows and doing very well. I do have to adjust my framing a bit so that it meets the judges requirements. I think it's great that we now have an IGMA forum! The members are scattered across the world. It's nice to be able to discuss things here. I have taught at the guild school twice and attended as a student twice, so I know a lot of you in person which is wonderful. I'm always looking to connect with more miniature artists. They were talking about the Genesis paint in another topic. I Remember Jeff telling me a story about how his cat got into that paint and it got all over the house! That paint never dries unless you heat it so he had a hard time finding it all and cleaning it all up. I saw the furniture that Bill Robertson posted. I took a class from Mary OBrian on japanning and we learned how to do that technique. I worked a little bit with that board that Cookie mentioned. I took the egg tempera class and we used to that to paint on. Haven't had time to put into the egg tempera but I really, really want to. It was really fun. I enjoy painting on the silk canvas that I invented but I also paint on board and Ivorine and Polymine (plastic) too. I work mostly in oils. I don't mind a slow drying time because I like to work carefully and slowly. If anyone has any questions about oil painting in general, I will be happy to answer those. I also know a little bit about miniature framing. Glad to belong. Hope to get a conversation started. Touched is a picture of me painting a little Seascape.
