I went to Michael's today to get more gesso'd board on which to paint, and I saw that they had a sale on Golden paint. 70% off. After picking my jaw up off the floor, I bought a few jars, and got some new colors I hadn't used before.
About a year and a half ago, I compared different acrylics to choose the best of the brands available. The winner was Golden for its consistency and smoothness. Once applied, it stays where I want it to stay. Perfect!
I mentioned the board... I got a few of the 11" x 14" gesso'd boards and a couple of large canvas. I found that Target offers a nicely matted 11" x 14" frame for $30. Perfect for the size I'm painting now.
And a friend of mine has agreed to let me hang my work in her store to sell, so I'll be painting a lot in the next month. Mostly flowers... but I'll try a few things.
