You are in Seattle so that means you are using Daniel Smith?

Are you happy with them? Their prices are great! Have you ever checked their lighfastness?

Hey Robin, I like the perspective on this one.

Nel said...

This is stunning. I want to have painted it! Nel

Robin Weiss said...

Elio. I do use Daniel Smith, also I have Da Vinci.

I have never tested the lightfastness of these paints but would be interested to know

Robin Weiss said...

Thanks Silvi! I was doing pretty good on your blog and then it locked up on me, but then my server is having trouble this week too.

I attempted to send Robin an email today only to receive this lovely auto-reply.

"To control spam, I now allow incoming messages only from senders I have approved beforehand."

I am hurt beyond words. I can only say I haven't painted since.

I never meant to hurt you bro. I'll have a talk with mr. spamblocker
