Cold, rainy weekend. Plans were to be elsewhere but weather cancelled those plans. I baked! The pot pie came out great as did the bread pudding. I was too busy with the art to do biscotti today.
I knew I had alot of sketchbooks started and I knew I had alot of acrylic paint. I have alot of paper, too. After taking that Color & Design class in 2008, I went a bit crazy with the paint purchases. They're getting a bit old now. The earth colors/browns just aren't holding up. I was taking stock. OMG, that's alot of paint tubes. Half are the small, skinny tubes but I recently bought a color I thought I was out of--whoops.
So I filed away another sketchbook, #15. I started the day with the three film canisters of left over paint from that 2008 class. I get to end the day with just one--blue. I made two new sketchbooks, actually they're reused/repurposed old notebooks. I'm going to need more Mod Podge, hehe.
My art goals in the past few years was to (2009) use up paper, (2011) to use up sketchbooks, and to use up paints. Okay, two goals for 2013:
1. To use up all the skinny paint tubes plus Galeria. The Galerias were my starter paints. I guess I have to learn to paint thick.
2. To use up all the sketchbooks that were on my 2011 list plus "Julie Sketches 2013." They're the ones with the checks and list how many pages I have left to go.
