Art Chat

So today is my day to blog and I was scratching my head wondering what I should share today. Then it came to me. I have a link some of you might not be familiar with. It's called Art Chat - It was formerly the Chatty Teacher's site.  http://porcelainartist.proboards.com/

It started out as a porcelain art (china painting) discussion and ended up with all kinds of art information. It has photos for artists to reference. It
includes general art discussions with health and safety information, free lessons, information on watercolors, clay art, glass art, oils and acrylic. It's free to join.

It is a fun site. And if you are so inclined to want to learn our art of china painting, that would be the place to get the information.

Pictured here is a piece of my porcelain art. The apples are china painted on a porcelain plate. China paints are fired in a kiln and the paints go into the glaze so that means that they are permanent. They will never wear off and you can put them in the microwave and dishwasher.  It is available in my Etsy shop - JYWheeler

Here's the direct link to the item:

Beautiful plate! I do watercolours and pastels mostly in journals,and I have done some larger ones. I posted a bit of my work on my blog, but as it is a quilting blog, I generally don't post my art work. It is nice to see your blog.
Thanks for joining mine!
