Artists, Ingrid A. Tronstad and Kristin Romberg are contemporary artists in Norway. This year they are working on a project that they describe, "like a diary, we create and post one pocket size art piece every day in 2013." Each day, regardless of where they are and what they are doing, the artists use Artist Trading Cards (traditionally 2.5 x 3.5in) to create a miniature piece of art and post it to their blog: 365rombergtronstad.wordpress.com.(Click this link to become a follower) They say, "the outcome is unknown - all we know is that in the end we will have a giant puzzle of 730 pieces of art. Our purpose is to challenge and inspire ourselves and others, and to exhibit the end result somewhere."
Below you will find two alternative methods to the Photo Emulsion method. Both use Screen Filler and Drawing Fluid instead of Photo Emulsion.

We now carry Escoda's Prado Synthetic Sable Travel Brushes - a more cost effective way to experience Escoda's Travel Brushes!
Prado Synthetic Sable Brushes are made with synthetic fibers that are very similar to sable hair. The synthetic fibers imitate the properties (color, spring, and the ability to absorb liquids) that artists look for in a sable brush. Escoda takes this similarity even further by using a combination of three different diameters and three lengths of fibers to create a brush with the same brushstroke result as one made with natural sable hair. The travel brushes come with a cap that extends the handle for convenient use. These beautiful brushes are perfect for anyone who likes to work outside their home or studio.

Originally sold as Shiva Signature Oils, Richeson Shiva Series oils, were created in the late 1920's by Ramon Shiva, an artist who wanted to make a superior brand of oil paint for himself and his friends. During the 1940's and thru the 1950s, Shiva became the leading oil paint manufacturer in the United States. In the late 60's the company was sold because of illness and the quality went down. Then in 2002, Jack Richeson acquired the old formulas that made Shiva Oil the top brand in the United States.
Shiva Oils are permanent, and will not darken, yellow, fade or crack. They are made with pure, artist grade pigments combined with the finest refined linseed oil available. The oils are processed to ensure an even distribution of pigment, resulting in a buttery, even consistency.

Join Mary Minifie February 22-24th from 9:30-4pm as she explores The Classic Still Life. The Southern Atelier explains: The aim
of this workshop is to explore several aspects necessary to produce a good
painting. The workshop will run for three days with 2 three hour sessions each
day. At least one still life will be floral and one non-floral so students can
choose what best suits their interests. The aim is to have a fairly finished
painting in the size range of 11"x14" or 16"x20" by the end
of the workshop.
COMPOSITION: The still lifes will already be set up in the interest of time,
but we will discuss the ideas of color families, value contrasts, variety of
size, color and value in the choice of objects. We will also discuss the
abstraction of the value shapes and how they are arranged in the rectangle of
the canvas. COLOR NOTES: A lot of emphasis will be placed on observing the color notes in
relation to each other. So much of the beauty of the painting is in the …
