On Monday I went to a hobby store in Kalispell looking to see if I can make an idea in my head materialize in real life. It is doubtful, because it involves something like graphite pencil and varnish. But I bought about two dollars worth of experimental stuff, and since I hate to put a paltry amount like that on a debit card I also got a tube of paint. And this is what happens when you buy a new tube of paint, open it, and it explodes all over. Sigh. The new color is some kind of grey that looks darkish blue. I didn't want to waste what fell out of the tube, and these were the other colors I had out on my counter. Frankly, these are not my colors at all. Ironically, however, this painting matches what I am wearing today (discounting the black and white zebra-print fleece vest). I don't have a name for this painting yet, but it is some kind of flower. And for a while it will live in the "that's ... interesting" pile.
My Dick Blick order arrived yesterday and I got some 4" x 4" and 5" x 5" canvases. My tag line is "Small art for small spaces," but now it will need to be "teeny art for teeny spaces!"
