New Toys and Test

 These are my new art supplies that came in last week.  The Schminke watercolors were on sale and they sent the 300lb. rough watercolor block as a free gift.  Nora, I couldn't resist buying the Schminke, it was an amazing offer, from Wet  It was a limited offer so I jumped to it, and happy I did.

The second is a test of paper and paint.  I will continue to experiment and have tons of fun in the process.

Happy painting everyone.

  9. I thank you all for you visit and comments. I have been nursing myself back to health. It seems my little darlins love to share their germs. Hence sinus and ear infection. Please excuse my lack of personal comments to you all. I promise to be back and running in a day or two.

    All the best to you all,
