Well, thanks to the encouraging comments, on yesterday's blog posting from Myra an Karen, I got busy this morning and started the portrait I'm going to call "Waiting". Right now it's in the oven for ten minutes, so the undercoats can dry. I use Genesis Oils most of the time because I like to be ready to paint at any time. With Genesis, the paint doesn't dry until you dry it. This is perfect for me because my brushes always stay wet and ready to go. Usually when I'm painting, I dry as needed with the heat gun, but today I wanted to dry the whole picture and take some time to write this blog posting. Thus the oven.
