HOW TO DEAL WITH SCAM COMMISSION

I am always nervous when I receive a commission from my website.
The questions that come to my mind are:

Is it a genuine request?
Who is the person asking?

Unfortunately artists receive a lot of scams. I have had a few. Somehow I have always felt there was something not quite right the way the message was worded.

I would like to warn my fellow artists and give them a link for them to read:


Usually, when I feel that the message is genuine but would like to know more about the customer, obviously I ask how they heard of me, where do they live and more questions.

I then, give my address and phone number. We can talk or exchange emails until we come to an agreement with the work and payment.

When I feel something is not quite right, I direct the person to my prints that can be bought on sites where I do not deal with payment.

PAINT & ALLERGIC REACTION


"For a song"
Golden Acrylic on paper Saunders Waterford
My first Acrylic painting in 5 years! wow!!!


For those who follow me, you will know that more than 5 years ago I developed an adverse reaction to some mediums:

- Pastel: I can no longer even open a tin of pastel. My lips, eyelids swell and I start coughing.
- Oil: I cannot be in a room with the fumes of Oil painting or turpentine. My lungs start to burn.
Acrylic : same problem than with Oil but what is disturbing is the fact it only started when some make of Acrylic decided to change their product to let Acrylic dry a longer time to behave like Oil.

After months of battling and years of Watercolour (the alone Medium I do not react)
I was desperate to paint as I used to!

  1.      I forgot all about Pastel. There is no point to persevere since there is no substitute.              
  2. I have tried Artisan Oil. from Winsor Newton I still did suffer with it but realised that it was all about the  added medium I was using (stand Oil) that is used to slow down the drying time and permits to achieve details while painting fine work. So I can now carry on with Artisan Oil but being very careful to use Stand Oil with open windows.
My major problem was the fact I could no longer paint with Acrylic! I absolutely adore the medium for its versatility. I could paint either on canvas, traditional work or play about on paper and experiment with added texture. Great fun!

As a member of the National Acrylic Painters Association my biggest frustration was I could no longer exhibit with the members. No work created, no paintings to exhibit.

Until... I explained my predicament to its Director who mentioned I could give a try to     Golden Acrylic  

I am so glad I did. I have no reaction to these wonderful Acrylics. 
Their colours are vibrant, they are of high quality.
Today, I have finished this first painting done on Paper.
I have started a large canvas too!

NEW YEAR 2015

It seems a bit late to send my very best wishes to you all who visit my blog.

I am rather sad of the events that happened in France, my country. It has touched all of us.
The fact that artists have been executed in cold blood for expressing their views with cartoons that some people did not like is so repulsive and incomprehensible!
Je suis CHARLIE

I am presenting my condolences to all the families affected.

*******

On my side, I have started 2015 with a commission.
A large painting of the Bay of Hythe which I have started.
I am also finishing a portrait that soon will be published here.

Thank you to the kind buyers of cards on Redbubble:
