Here's your latest edition of Easy Oils Blast! A blast of new information, paintings and demonstrations in oil painting.

So lets get started with some really great information!

Has it been that long?

Yes! Time flies when you get really busy, and if you follow me on facebook, the older I get, the crazier my life becomes.

Just today, I was on a 24 foot extension ladder finishing up a bit of repairs to the side of the house. Bummer, I hate ladder work. I don't bounce on the ground as good as I used to, so, I make sure I stay on the ladder.

Why a ladder you ask?

We had a tornado visit us (within a block of our studio) Thank Heavens, no fatalities, but some folks near us are without homes. So proud of our community, much help has been given in food, shelter, and cleanup of these properties.

With that said, lets get to some other artsy news.

I've had to put my last few "Yellow Rose Demonstration" DVD's into the big vault. (not the sky vault!, but a secure storage cabinet)

I just couldn't bring myself to reorder. Nor could I watch it on my large screen High definition tv. I'm already thinking about a new movie. It will be of a large format flower. But I am still doing some research on just exactly how.

Until then, you can see some of the reasons we held this "retirement party" here:

Oil Painting articles

There are a few pictures below, and I'm curious. Anyone seen any of these objects in art school?

Since I didn't go to an art college, (I'm a techno nut, BA in management of technology, which means I know a little about a lot of techno things) these particular instruments I have found out about, and have used successfully in my ventures as an artist.

These and a few more interesting tid bits are found on the page below. Click the link to find out more.

The images take you to each article too!

The Flemish Method of painting!

Still the best technique when starting out. It simplifies the process into understandable steps, and you get fantastic results right away. You can see some of these results from folks that have contributed to the site over the years.

Sorry for all the underscores. I'm a baby boomer, and once I set up the account, my kids reminded me of what a pain it is to add those underscores to find me. I then reminded them they hey, follow me, and you won't have to keep typing that mess in. I'll just appear in your feed.

They were impressed.

Who said you can't teach an ol dog new tricks?

My New FaceBook page! Pinterest?, Facebook? Twitter? and all that jazz!

I've created a new Facebook Page! Would you come and see it? It's all about my new paintings and my travels in creating them. I hope you will join me! Just "like" the page to have my new works added to your Facebook timeline or news-feed.

This really is a great resource, as I find new techniques and other interesting art, I will post them to the Facebook Page. And of course, more of my hillbilly humor is thrown in for free!

Delmus Phelps Fine Art facebook page

What are they all about? This is a social media site similar to facebook, or tweeter, but it's based on images only. This is an artist's dream! Soooo many pictures, but not enough time to see them all.

The buttons above send you to my page, but once your registered, you'll have your own page to set up and start collecting your favorite images!

If you really like a painting or image found on the site (Easy Oil Techniques), feel free to push that little button underneath the image!

It will post the image to the Pinterest site. You do need to go through a simple registration process, but you will not be disappointed. The pictures available are simple amazing and will truly get your creative juices flowing with ideas for your next painting project!

Facebook Like it please!

Don't forget the great addition to the site is the Facebook application!

If you're a Facebook Fan, then you'll appreciate this. You can "like" a page, and comment on it's contents so your Facebook friends can see what all the hub-bub is about, and where you spend your valuable hours learning on how to paint great things!

Spread the word! Click on the like buttons and give me your comments on the site! You don't even have to leave the site, it's all right there for your convenience.

And our readers love 'em!

Also, in the upper right hand corner of most pages, you can find my Facebook page, and follow along activities that I post in-between ezine issues.

I'm now on Twitter! I find that if you reply to me rather then direct message (DM), I'll be able to find you easier. I get so much spam these days, I rarely check my direct messages in twitter any longer.

You can follow me, and I'll follow you back, but do reply to me that you are following so's I can follow you back! just tweet an "@delmus" in your tweet box!

Follow me on Twitter

Well I hope the information was useful to you. Future ezines will be in a similar format, just different information.

Let me know what you think! Have I helped you in any way? Twitter me, or drop me an email. I would love to see some of your work!

Till next time!

This is Delmus Phelps wishing you a happy painting day!
