I’m still plugging along. I only use blue, yellow, magenta, black and white paints. I mix my own colors.
Well, mid-painting, I ran out of the blue gouache. My local art supply store was out of gouache (because I bought it all!) and I live an hour from any other store that would carry fine art supplies ( I have to get my kids from school, so there is now way I can drive two hours and pick up paint in time!). I had to special order the paint which means finishing this painting is on hold until I get the supplies… I can imagine it is just like Van Gogh running out of the organic compounds ochre & umber in the middle of Arles… your just stuck right? Yeah Vincent. I feel your frustration.
I have a long laundry list of other creative projects I put on hold so I could paint. I guess the responsible thing to do would be to get all my other work done…maybe even some actual laundry – nah, I’m not that desperate!
OK. I’ll keep you posted on my progress and I hope you are all taking on something uber-creative today!
