Thank you, Sue, for your kind words as well as sharing your experience with the new painting medium.

Kindest regards,


Hi Theresa - yes, that same story has been the rock getting me through the years of challenges! It just resonates across boundaries.

I read Paul's book years ago. In fact when a hurricane and flood destroyed my house and art library of 200+ books, his was one of the first I replaced.I sat in my FEMA trailor surrounded by wreckage, re-reading the chapter about the fire that destroyed his inventory and thinking yeah, I can do this!


Thanks, Patrick! I will look for that book and read it.It sounds really interesting.

Sue, this post reminded me of the book The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property by Lewis Hyde.
You might enjoy it because he talks about the difference between gifts and commerce. As artists, we're in both cultures and it's good to know the difference.


Hi Robert - thank you for the endorsement of Rosemary & Co and RGH Artist Oils. I will visit their websites!

Morning, Sue.

Such a good post and so true. We do need good partners.

I find the smaller companies like Gamblin, Rosemary & Co., and RGH Artist Oils value customers and true relationships so much more.

We all are interconnected. I choose to be supportive and encouraging to my fellow artists. Being decent and helpful to others is essential for success.

Thanks for the article. I'll have to get that book by Paul...sounds like an insightful read.
