    I hear you, while I don't have any children, we have 3 cats, a dog and 2 aquariums so I can feel a little bit of what you mean :D. I guess that just makes us appreciate the time when we can work on our stuff all the more!

    I agree! I love oil paints and had a lot of fun with regular pastels in the past so it sounds like they would be fun to try. They will have to wait for a while though for me. I have too many projects that I am working on right now. Why can't the days be just a few hours longer? :)

    Your work is extraordinary! Wow nicely done! Did you enjoy using the oil pastels? I have never used those before, just played a bit with the regular ones. Don't forget National Novel Writing Month is coming up in November! The challenge is to write at least 50,000 word novel in the 30 days...

    I agree with everyone else, I hope you finish this. It's very good! We truly are our own harshest critics. Maybe take a break from it and come back to it with fresh eyes? The dog is so sweet, don't let him or her sit in watercolor limbo. Haha!

    That Time Of Year...

    Miss Noodle, your tank looks so beautiful! I never knew you could do that, it is so cool! Are there any leaves to avoid and should they be leaves that fall on their own? Thank you for sharing, the effect is really something!

    Question White String Hanging From Stomach?

    Maybe do some research but I believe epsom salt baths can help with constipation but I have no idea how it's done. You can probably find it on here, instructions on how and when to do it. I'm making dinner or I would help you research. Keep us posted!!!

    Question White String Hanging From Stomach?

    Kat, I am not sure, I have never had to use any meds on my fish so far so I hesitate to recommend any treatment other than what I have done myself or researched about. It is concerning that he is not being active though. Maybe giving some meds a try would help if there is more of an issue going...

    Question White String Hanging From Stomach?

    My betta had a similar problem, I posted pictures here and it turned out not to be parasites, just poop. Not saying it is the same but looks it to me. I fasted him for a couple days and fed a small piece of steamed pea. I am not an expert but looks like the same as what I saw with my fish. I'll...

    Your explanation makes alot of sense and sounds like it must have made for an exciting class! Thanks for sharing your work, very nice. Hands are tough, an old friend of mine had to do a series of sketches for school of hands in different positions etc. and she about tore her hair out doing it.

    Thanks so much! I am happy with it although the cherries look like they are floating in space :D. Oh well, I had a great time working on it so I'm pretty happy.

    Not sure if this is an issue or not but I have noticed that some new posts I (& others) have posted to a thread have not been showing up under the "New Posts" section.

    I did this paint along video yesterday and it was so much fun. I haven't touched my oils (except to smell them, Kat you know what I mean!) for a while and wanted to re-do & actually finish the fish painting for my dad. Well I was a bit nervous about starting right into that so was looking for...

    I have a couple abstracts from many years ago that I sort of liked, I'll see if I can find them. I recently attempted a landscape that was so bad I almost peed myself laughing at it. Watercolor is probably the medium I have done the least out of all that I have tried. But I love them and hope to...

    Kat you tricked me! I saw an alert that you had posted to this thread but didn't see your post. Then I finally wised up and figured it out :confused:.

    I really enjoy graphite pencils but they are a whole different animal from colored pencils it seems. I may give them a whirl, all this art discussion has me in the mood to get back into it more. Keep painting if you enjoy it, that is the main thing.

    Any Artists Here?

    Wow, that look like I could drive it right off the paper! Outstanding, colored pencils are tricky I have heard. Haven't done much with them myself but looks like you have it nailed. after 4 years you were able to do that? Once I have been away from drawing or painting for a while etc it's like I...

    Thanks so much for your kind words! I liked pastels because it reminded me of being a kid and drawing on the sidewalk with colored chalk. I agree with you about oils, nothing like it. My favorite for sure! Just wish I had more time for it, every once in a while I have to open a tube and just...

    I really think that if you have a gift, special knowledge or ability it's really nice to pass it on to another person. I also think you should never stop learning of finding inspiration in others. I see so much of that sentiment here and it is really nice. Ok all of the sharing of work has made...

    I Think There Is Hope!.....

    Yes I did see the one on Aquarium Co-Op, pretty cool. My first visit to this store and was so glad I made the trip since it is not very close to me. Just glad to see the tide turning, makes it even more important to me to support stores who adopt these practices. Not sure if it is allowed to...

    Question Malaysian Trumpet Snails

    Exactly! I always thought I was feeding correctly because I was not having any water quality issues or problems with fish dying. They proved how wrong I was. :D Very useful little creatures so I hope I did not scare you off of them. And did I say that they are cute? Ha ha

    I Think There Is Hope!.....

    I have been seeing some posts here that some fish/pet stores have started changing the way they keep bettas, getting rid of those horrible cups and displaying them more humanely. Well aside from the LFS that I usually frequent I had not seen this until this past weekend. I visited another highly...

    Question Malaysian Trumpet Snails

    Just know that once you have them, you will probably always have them. I ended up with mine by accident off of some live plants I bought. For a time their population in my tank was kind of out of control but now I only see one once in a while. If you are over feeding your fish their population...

    Excited About Testing...

    I love testing my water, makes me feel like a mad scientist every time! But I love seeing everything stable, if there is anything off I am not happy. Fortunately that doesn't happen very often, but it is an opportunity to learn something :)
