    Hi, Tansy,
    Thank you for your answer to my question about oil paints. I took your advice and removed all oil paints, media and recent paintings from the house. I am slowly but surely getting stronger! Thank you so much!
    I am painting with acrylics again.

    Dear Adl

    I'm just so pleased to hear you are painting again, I know acrylics aren't quite the same but you do get used to the differences.

    I had to stop painting for a while: just found trying to concentrate on what I was doing, and my difficulties in controlling brushes and pallette knives, drove me crazy and completely exhausted my brain. Intead of being a pleaure it just frustrated me and left me unable to use my brain for anything else.

    So for the meantime I just do my photography, when I can, and look forward to painting again once things improve enough.
