Work, Work, Work!

I finally finished a new painting... I think. The gloss is down. I put it on my wall and stared it down every day, thinking about how to go about getting what I want... Today when I was in the basement washing diapers (glamorous, yes?) I was sort of wandering around looking at things, checking out the art supply situation (because I had just been upstairs at the Dick Blick site filling my shopping cart) when I spotted this old box of oil pastels I've had for fifteen years. Perfect! I brought them upstairs and went to town on my painting.

I still haven't decided if it's a pile of garbage or if I wouldn't be horribly embarrassed to post a picture. Jason has agreed to take said picture. I mean, he *is* a professional, after all, I shouldn't be putting such horrible photos of my art up on the internet for all the world to pass around like a virus. *cringe*

Jason, I want you to plug in that camera RIGHT after you take the picture, and then I want you to send it to me, immediately. Otherwise you are fired!

Well, reader, I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Check in again soon.

Oh, you just triggered some brain cells (a feat these days). I miss ordering through Dick Blick! Do you ever order, the memory is going again. SMITH? (I had to google it)
Nothing like the smell of pastels, oils, mineral spirits. sigh. I have too many children.
