Hello from illinois

Post by Sherrie on Tue May 11, 2010 5:51 pm

Hi, I am Sherrie, from grayslake illinois. I just started this year. Haven't been painting for over 20 years, my little girl got me started FP. Need to sharpen my skill and senses. Wish to learn from your guys, you're all so creative and talented... This forum is amazing, better than I can ever imaging...

By the way, is there anybody live close to grayslake? I feel so isolated and would like to know other artists and maybe share a big gig? flower

Hi Sherrie, welcome! I'm a former Chicago girl (Hyde Park,) lived there through junior high and visit frequently, at least on St Patrick's Day weekend every year.
This is a great forum to learn.

Hi Sherrie-

Good luck finding some painters or a guild to network with. Meanwhile - this is an excellent resource of talented painters, tips, and contests! Happy Painting!!! I love Chicago....and am sad my oldest daughter is leaving in July so I won't have an excuse to visit!

Hi Psalmbook, I always wonder, the eyes in your picture, are they painted?

The eyeliner is, but those are my eyes. I never noticed, but the orange makes my green eyes pop.

Thanks! I have a party this weekend, they want me paint 25 children in one hour. Don't think I can do it. Can I use your mom's teal butterfly design? Seems pretty and quick!

If I post any pics on here, they are fair game for you to use. The background colors are Starblend powders, but can be done w/ any paint. The linework is either wolfe or dfx.
Twenty-five in an hour?!? Yikes! I can do maybe 15/20. Good luck & hope for easy swirles

Thanks, hope the man would be reasonable when he sees my work.
