I'm officially giving up on watercolor painting. It's not giving me the look needed. And it's as hard as it's reputation. And I'm still really bad at them. Can't see sticking with a medium that I'm not happy with. Going to go to acrylics.  Sticking with the same brand I used in watercolor. M Graham. Got 7 tubes on the way. Cadmium red, cadmium yellow, ultramarine blue, titanium white, burnt sienna, burnt umber and yellow ocher. I know these are all warm colors. Be able to make cool colors with these paints easily. Also have a bottle of Grumbacher gesso on the way as well. Going to use all this watercolor paper I have to gesso over and practice with. Good news is a had full of the water color brushes I have will handle acrylic paint. The rest will get put up with the watercolor paints.

I would love to play with oil. it's the chemicals that are keeping me away. I know they make water soluble paints but you still have odors to deal with. Pro acrylics don't have the same bad smells as the cheaper paints. They don't use all the additives cheap paints use to thin them down.

Right now i'm practicing with craft acrylics on untreated watercolor paper. Not the best. But all I'm practicing now is brush strokes and control. Once the new paint and gesso come in I'll be doing a lot of value and color studies to get used to this new medium.

The department of justice under Trump claims a president can't
be indicted, but it seems to  me that's why we have a vice president.
He or she can take over anytime the president is disabled for any
reason. Legal, medical, or otherwise. Yet this seems to be ignored
unless the president dies. I think it's time no matter who is in
office, if they are guilty of wrong doing they should be removed
till a decision of guilt of innocence and ability to serve is found.

I think pardons by the president should not apply to family, friends,
or buisness associate. Human nature leads to protective desires by
anyone with the unlimited power to pardon. Even to protect themselves.
I really think only those recommended by a impartial panel should
be pardoned.

There are over a dozen people running for president as Democrats.
Many would claim to be left of center on policies, but some are
moderates. People shouldn't worry about left leaning candidates
running for the office of the president. It's congress who makes
the laws, not the president. Inspite of how Trump has tried to
do since in office.  the president is only a leader, not a law maker.

The big reason we need to get rid of Trump is because he is not
a leader of the people. He ignores the needs of those who didn't
vote for  him. This shows he only wishes to use the office of the
president for his own benifit. His abuse of power and attempt to
devide the people only harms us all. He claimes he wanted to
make the country great again, he has done nothing but pull us
down in the eyes of the world.

Some might not care what the world or other countries thinko f
us, but we have to live with them, and many people depend on
commerce with other countries for their livelihood.  Trump,
due to his ignorance of International economics our trade
deficit has increased since he has been in office. Leaders of
of other countries do not find Trumps bullying tactics
acceptable. They will just walk away instead of makeing
deals that benifit us both.

Trump thinks he is smarter than those who have spent
many years dealing with other countries. There isn't
anything wrong with questioning advice, but he isn't smart
enough to know when he is wrong. I am sure he is a fine
real estate dealer, and salesman, but that's about all.

If we don't elect a different person for president in 2020
our country and our people will suffer even more. Even our
democracy could be damaged, with the loss of rights for
us all.

Hello and welcome!

I don't think we've had an Okapi on the forums before, that's really unique (and pretty cool, too). I look forward to seeing you around!

I think I do. They are quite shy and mis-understood at times. I am outgoing once I get to know people, but until that point I am beyond super shy. That is what I love about them, they just like to do their own thing in their own terms.

You were working on the engine while it was running, and it pulled your ears into the serpentine belt, slicing and dicing you up in the fan nearby.

My filling was about 12 years old and finally started coming loose. The replacement is very bad, and I'm worse off than I was!!!

Hi Ffximoogle!

Okapi are neat looking. I've never seen one except in pictures.
You certainly would look striking as one, with those interesting stripes they have!

So, do you identify with the animal at all?  I identify with wolves, in terms of behavior, spirit, etc.. But that is not exactly a furry thing...

And I too really love the fandom since it's so welcoming.  And you have me beat, I need to get to a convention!

Glad you made it, and sorry I'm so late.  Been busy, unfortunately.
