|test, test, this is only a test ... is this thing working?|
|a sackful of acrylic paints, a gift from a friend who moved away|
She was moving to Texas but before she packed, she purged her belongings. Not a small purge, either. I'm sure that she only took 1/3 of her total stuff to the "don't mess with us" state. Out went vases and bicycles, boats, a car, lots of furniture, and many art supplies.
"Do you want these?" she asked me, pointing to a big box of paint. (When someone offers you paint, the answer is always YES, right?)
Later, I sorted through the paint and found tubes of acrylic, more of oil, and some water miscible oils. Wow! I haven't painted with acrylic before, so today I opened the tubes and squeezed out the colors onto a sheet of watercolor paper. I just wanted to see what I have. What fun!
Next, I'll pull out 3-5 colors and play with them and see what I can do with a limited palette.
I love the paint, but I miss my friend. This one is for you, Debra. Hugs.
