Supplies goodies I bought

I had one day of rest and today I have been going through my purchases (YIKES) so I thought since I don't have new showable art then I will show you some supplies I purchased. 

First of all here is my permission slip from Burridge to create art without fear and discouragement.
 "Just keep painting until it looks right!"
I think sometimes I get frustrated too quickly. Bob Burridge has 30 paintings going at once and if he feels like he is stuck on one he goes to the next. Ok, that makes me have to resolve my issue of leaving a painting "unresolved."
I have permission to do that now!
I am such a rule follower--I need permission sometimes to trudge into uncharted ground.


Below is probably the best paper for printing. I took a digital class and boy was it informative! I wish I had know these things 5 years ago. This paper is by Canson Infinity and there are many different kinds depending on the texture you like. This is a sample pack which has all of the sheets to try. These two prints are on Canson BFK and Canson Arches (pronounced "Arsh", in the French manner.)
Canson owns Arches and Canson has been around since the time of Michelangelo.

The brushes are Stratford and York Rutland (orange handle), Isabey Isaceyl, and his "detail brush"--(ha ha that's his joke) His is an Escoda Chunking #4.  It's BIG. Jerry's didn't have that one but this one was comparable.



The next thing is the Holbein Acrylic paint. Here is the Acryla and the Holbein Mat Arylic. Both are fabulous pure pigment paints and I absolutely love them. As I work through all my Golden I will probably just use these. The are bright and act like watercolor also without loosing any pigment.



I had such a fun time. I know that if I want to be a better painter I need to paint everyday. It is very important to paint everyday if possible because that's the only way to learn about color, color combinations and contrast.
But as we all know, life gets in the way.
"Life" for me lately has had it's extreme ups and downs and it seems it just keep on coming.
But you know...that's just life!
Carry on!

All of your purchases look wonderful. I've been trying to be a "good girl" lately and NOT buying supplies. So far, so good. I'm still in kind of a creative slump and don't know what to do to get myself out of it. Got any advice?? Your class sounds like it was very inspiring!

They look great! I hope you had a blast.

Looking forward to seeing the art that comes with them!
Hugs and blessings

I just recently discovered going to another project when I am stuck on one, and it is quite helpful and refreshing. I love your purchases. Have a grand time with them!

I'd like to try those various papers. I'm always looking for something that will show, on paper, what I'm seeing on the screen. Photographs work, but printer paper usually doesn't. Thanks

I can't wait to see what you come up with next!! And I will have to try that paper, I have been having trouble finding a brand that I like.
