I am in Georgia.
Good to see someone from Texarkana, as my sister lives on the TEXAS side in the Twin city. I was raised in DeKalb. I visit there once or twice a year and try to find shops with decorative painted items. I get different ideas from different places. Always something to keep me going on to the next project.

Because I loth painting, I prefer to be in a State of Inebriation. After listening to explanations about what paints work with what primers, I am usually in a State of confusion. Once I have paid for the paint my wife picks out, I am in a State of Denial. For those who paint on canvas and bring things to life, I am in a state of amazement. But please let me State for the record, I believe paint in all its various forms should be left to professionals who love their job.

LOL!
Its a good thing you stated you are from Louisiana... my husbands name is Doug too and your reply made me think he had snuck in here and written that!
I try not to go into lengthy conversation about technique with him about my painting... he has his hobbies computers/car models/cars and I realize that when he starts conversation with me about his hobbies it all sounds Greek to me. :)
Have a great day and thanks for the chuckle!

In a state of intense concentration. When I'm painting a whole day can pass by...the only things that get my attention are hunger and the call of nature. I do my painting in Kitchener, Ontario...that's in Canada.

What state am I in? Mostly confusion and ignorance! But I've been told that spending my years in the southmost tip of Texas (seems to be 100 most of the time!!) hasnt hurt my painting...but my chat friends do worry about my mental stability since I will soon be married to a man with 5 sons after first marriage of 28 yrs without children! I know that we painters are special & spread everywhere cause I've gotten to meet some of you! Love us all no matter where we are!!

Hi Patti here. I paint in Iowa. Hi to Kim and Trish, what part of Iowa are you in? I'm in the southwest in CB right next to Omaha NE.

And to Robin. I have a friend who lives across the street from Disney Land. Judy Coderre (I may have spelled that wrong I know her by maiden name) How about looking her name up in phone book and giving her my email address. I have lost track of her.

Have fun painting.
