This is the amount of money I spent today furthering my art career. I bought a bunch of el cheapo paint (and a container to hold it all) and I am giddy. PLUS, I sold another painting yesterday, so now I can afford to buy more canvas, varnish and some GOOD paint. Dick Blick will be hearing from me tomorrow.
The painting I sold wasn't one I intended to sell; I didn't like the background so had it sitting in a pile of stuff on my table. When I decided to use it for an experiment, the paper piled on top of it stuck, and left tiny bits of white on the paint. Oops. After my experiment, I kinda liked it but still considered it an accident so I took it to work, framed it and gave it to Roxie. I loved it once it was framed. But Tracy saw it at work and loved it too. Said he needed it. I was conflicted, but let him buy it. I can't keep everything, right? Look for it in tomorrow's post - the one in the loud gold frame. Now I am trying to paint a replacement so Poodle knows I still love her.
Poodle face and I went for a run outside for the first time in about four months. It was beautiful. So far I am 16 down, 984 to go! I am going to SMASH this goal. Heh heh. In my dreams.
$12.65. And a run outside. It is a good day.
