I’m shipping this to Lilacs & Lace Gallery on Mackinac Island as soon as it’s dry. The Windermere Hotel is on my bucket list… one of many. Such a beautiful, peaceful getaway.
I can’t believe school is wrapping up for summer already! Crazy schedules these last 2 weeks trying to fit everything in before the big count down of summer begins. It seems like a nice and lazy season but after July 4th it’s gone in a flash! We’re lucky to live in an area with all 4 seasons. If only one of them… not mentioning any names (WINTER) wouldn’t over stay it’s welcome… I know, I know, count my blessings. Happy to do it.
I want to pass on a couple of things art related. First is the Rosemary Brush Co. A fellow painter recommended them and I went whole hog and trusted him and got a bunch of brushes… and I love them! They were inexpensive too… quality is all good… they hold their shape nicely. I highly recommend them… you can contact them for a catalog at http://www.rosemaryandco.com/. They are from the UK so count on a bit of extra shipping time.
I also got some good feedback from Carol Marine’s blog. She’s a fantastic painter and is highly successful in not only galleries but also an online gallery she and her husband run called http://www.DailyPaintWorks.com This tip is about saving paint left on your palette. I use an air tight container and it still goes bad after a couple of days of non use. Here’s an excellent solution: They’re called “paint savers” and they’re little suction cups that keep your paint wet for weeks. Here’s a photo and a link to the website: http://www.paintsavers.org.
