Questions….I get questions:))
Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked.
1. What colors/brands do you use?
Mostly Winsor & Newton brand with a few Old Holland, Rembrandt and Richeson colors thrown in:
Ice Blue (Shiva-Richeson)
Transparent Red Medium (Rembrandt)
Caribbean Blue (Old Holland)
Transparent Oxide Orange (Rembrandt)
Transparent Oxide Brown(Rembrandt)
2. What’s your favorite brush?
I have several that I truly love but if I had to be stranded on a dessert isle with only two things, I’d have to pick the Winsor and Newton Monarch Number 14 Flat.
And Brad Pitt.
3. Who’s Eddie?
9 pounds of bad attitude, fur and whiskers posing as a loving pet that lives with, on, and in spite of me. He is a favorite subject to paint (I have no idea why) along with his faithful side-kick, Phyllis the Mouse.
4. How do you sign your paintings?
Seriously, while they are dripping wet I sign my name using a little thing called the Kemper Wipe Out tool. Works like a charm:))
5. Do you photograph your own work and if so, what kind of camera do you use?
Yes, I’m a point and shoot girl with a good camera:))– a Nikon 3200D.
6. What easel do you like best?
I have a wooden “H” type easel for my home studio which I have shabby chicified:))
For travel, my hands down favorite is the Coulter Plein Air System, mid size. It has hung out in France, Italy and more with me. It weighs less than Eddie (see question #3) and fits easily into my carry on luggage.
7. Do you ever sleep?
I hang out with Eddie a lot, so I think you know the answer to that already—cat napping being one of my favoritest things to do on the planet.
8. Do you have a DVD?
No–I’ve got something better. It’s my online workshop, Dream.Love.Paint. It’s like me moving in with you and painting with you—minus me eating your groceries. I consider it a win/win 😉 You can learn more about it AND see what a bunch of the awesome peeps who’ve taken have to say about it. Just click here.
9. How old is Eddie?
In case you hadn’t noticed, Eddie is vain. He doesn’t like to share that info—he won’t even say which of his nine lives he’s on.
10. Do you really have a dog? And how does Eddie feel about this?
Yes, a lovable little pound puppie named Maggie. She and hubby Ron are BFFs. Eddie loves Ron and for that reason manages to “tolerate the foul little beast” (Eddie’s words, not mine.)
