I am a oil painter just wondering if there are any other artist in the November group. If so what have you changed with your art? Any worries?
Being a oil painter I am having to switch over to acrylic paints due to them being safer. But I am still worried about painting with those.

I mainly do video projects but I paint too. I use water soluble oil with my paintings, I didn't even think about it having a harmful effect. I don't have a painting planned.

I had thought about switching to water solubles oils but talked to Grumbacher and they suggested I didn't use them do to harmful metals. I am going to try golden open acrylics. But I do have a huge oil painting I was trying to get finished for a show and not sure what to do. It is almost finished... Should I finish it or wait?????
I had thought about only painting for short spurts with a window open and a fan blowing. I also just picked up a commission job and must get it done.
I never even thought about my painting when ttc. I was excited because I could just paint and work and getting more art jobs. When I figure how to post a picture I will put one on of a painting

I wouldn't call myself an artist, but I dabble in art. Canvas, art journaling, mixed media and some paper crafting. I'm never inspired while pregnant. I can sit and stare at a blank canvas for hours; even if I had an idea to start with.

So do any of you think it would be okay to finish my oil project with the fan blowing and window open? Only working30-60 minutes?

I would double check with your doctor. I've never used oil paints. Gave up on oil pastels years ago because my old cat used to try to eat them.
