I am thrilled to have received an honorable mention (in the oils category) at the LCAC Spring Show. The painting is a small alla prima study of strawberries entitle “Strawberry Jam.” There were so many amazing pieces. I am so grateful I was able to participate. About 600 pieces were submitted to the show and only half were accepted.
Having good brushes is important… an yet only now do I own some Rosemary & Co! I have some other decent brands, but I had such a hard time deciding I was worthy of purchasing Rosemarys. Rosemary brushes are the ones those good artists use… ya know, not people like me. People like me are meant to chug along with low quality things… OH MAN. *BRAIN LYING ALERT!*
Luckily this workshop coming up challenged me with a grown-up-artist supply list. Stuff I should have ordered months ago, but have now finally said, “Yeah, I’m committed to this path. It’s time to invest a little in it.”
And it feels good.
