May 7: Acquerelli Nuovi


Squeezing fresh paint onto a new palette reminds me of the way I felt as a child when I opened a brand new box of Crayons - excited, expectant and convinced it was going to make a real difference in my art.

I finally decided to try some Schmincke watercolors and found a store in Oregon that actually carries them. No more $25 shipping charges to Jerry's! Well, at least not for Schmincke watercolors.

The emotions you speak of,excitement and expectancy, really come out in this painting. I'd like to dive in myself -- even though I find watercolors very scary!

Wonderful! You'll have to let us know if you really like them. I have been trying to decide if I want to spend the money on them--people speak well of them.
