"Interesting. My new Liquitex Titanium White arrived. Apparently, this version of white is still not white. I had thought the previous old Shiva white had yellowed: but the new version is the same vanilla color. I recall a painting teacher - decades…"

"Thank you. Checking them now. The Liquitex has the best reviews for permanence and coverage. I'll go with that one. "

"I did pull it out with a stick and remix. It was pretty stiff and lumpy. It reconstituted readily, though.  The next day when I saw what I had applied was yellow, I squeezed more out to get the paint that was further inside. That looks pretty…"

"Yes, Shiva is a lower quality brand, especially an old tube but that usually won't apply to yellowing. The mediums in all paints, oil, acrylics, gouache etc will separate so it could be you did not 're-mix' it. Knead the tube or use a…"

"I would suggest a Google search, or check DickBlick.com as they have artists' reviews and recommendations of most items that they carry, plus they do a lot of mail order off their web site.  That being said, try Liquitex.  They have…"

Excellent post of the day, Linnea! Thank you. I hope everyone who feels beaten down by the jury system reads it.

And the trophy goes to Linnea! Once again cutting through the words and explaining so clearly what everyone needs to hear. Good job on your recent comment at "Crafter Police".

Hi, Linnea!  Connie suggested I leave a comment for you... Coming from the Chicagoland area, what do you know of the Deerfield Festival of Arts in Deerfield, and the Naperville Women's Guild's Art Show?  Both of these are on the weekend of June 4-5... Have you done either of these or heard good/bad info on them?  Coming from Central Illinois, I know both areas are good areas, but I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on either show.  Any thoughts or comments would be most appreciated!  Many thanks in advance, then, for your time and efforts!

 

Warmest regards!

Thank you for your response. I have realized from perusing this site that there are just so many issues that I have never considered. I appreciate the advice from all of you who have been in the business.

Hi Linnea! I was looking for information about Artfest Midwest, and saw your post about booth recommendations. Since you did the show last year, do you have any booth location recommendations?
Thanks!

Thanks Lin for weighing in on A-RTS. These shows pay me, of course, to have their information shared and to have this one get such reviews from you is great! I appreciate it.

Hi Linnea...I'm exhausted tonight. I will call the hotel and see if they will accept your name instead of mine. It's a Country Inn and Suites which are nice. I'll get it done by 10:30 central time. Call me! 770 843 4604

Hi Linnea, not sure if you got my other messages, I seem to have a hard time manuvering around this site. I'm sure you're busy with shows right now.
