Recently I decided to start a fresh palette. The old one was maintained for over a year. The Golden Open Acryics along with a sealed palette like Mijello, if refreshed with new paint when needed make that possible. It works because the paint slowly thickens instead of skinning over. I recently bought a gray palette, which is a great neutral backdrop. I still have my white one, I’m letting it dry completely so I can easily peal off the old paint. I will keep them both going.
On my easel today is a painting of Begonias, stirred into action by the Spring fever I’m feeling. 6″x6″ stretch Gallery Wrap Canvas.
One thing I look forward to every Spring is my first trip to Medary Acres, our local Nursery. This is where I went looking for my subject.
Posing with my subject is a persistent Merlin the Cat. I’ve just decided he should be the star of a new painting, coming soon!
