Acrylics

Posted Nov 2007

I've been making an Acrylic Caricature of a little girl, and I found out that I can store the unfinished palette in the freezer - just like I do for oil paints. Only I have to wait a few minutes for the acrylic paints to thaw out before using them.

Sure we had heard similar ideas before - things like practice love, humility, and charity. But SilLai felt a need to spend her time really focusing on that. She had a good way with words. And she was speaking/writing with real integrity. Life gets so complicated. Sil Lai's simplified process of starting with The Truth of any situation, and then going on to Acceptance Action Commitment Focus and Faith - We walked out feeling empowered and happy.
