Day Twenty three – Green Pastel
October 23, 2010 § 8 Comments
I decided to make chicken soup, cauliflower soup, and chicken enchilada casserole – this afternoon! I’ve pretty much figured out that if I’m going to work full time, have a life, and create my apples then something has gotta give. So I’ll need to prepare some food ahead.
So, before starting on chopping onions and picking chicken (I hate to pick chicken) I thought that I would run into town – ha – it’s 15 miles, and go to Guiry’s for some new paper and new pastels. Some women covet handbags – I want more art supplies – I could really care less about what I carry my stuff around in ( ok, maybe I care a bit – lol). I’ve got my eye on a new red sable watercolor brush because the one my grandmother gave me (oh my goodness – almost 25 years ago) has the paint all flaking off the wooden handle and is all loose where the metal holds the hair. It still has a nice point on it but it isn’t quite how it used to be but it’s really the only watercolor brush I use and it has a lot of sentimental value. But seriously, check out the point on this No. 6!
Ok – I’ve gone off track a bit. I put my pastels to the test in today’s apple and I wrote down around 40 ideas for apples to come…
