"Help…I Can’t Wipe the Grin Off My Face"

Okay, I know it’s ridiculous, but those of you who paint will understand. New paints came in the mail today. BOXES OF NEW PAINTS. BOXES OF NEW COLORS. I have been trying to work on the computer, but it’s all I can do to avoid THE BOX. If I were a cat, this would be my catnip.
Now those of you with a discerning eye will notice the painting knife in the above photo is big enough to serve pizza with. Catalogue ordering run a muck……I wanted a nice Italian made painting knife to ad to my collection. Unless I start painting billboards in the near future, this knife may just have to serve as a reminder to double check the size before dropping it in the virtual shopping cart.
Well, just wanted to share my personal glee. You will probably start seeing some of these colors surfacing in the near future……..new colors are a wonderful thing. And that is why I can’t wipe this silly, caught in the cat nip again look, off my face. Have a colorful day!!!!!!!

    It’s wonderful, isn’t it?? I feel on top of the painting world when I open mine. Like the paints possess some power that will single-handedly conquer the greatest of all my painting woes! Guess that’s why my most recent order weighed 22 lbs : )ReplyCancel

    Somehow I knew I’d get a rise out of everybody on this post….we are all worse than a pack of kids with a new box of crayons….Hehe! Leslie, bigger isn’t always better, no matter what you may have heard..I would not want to go to a duel with you on the knife paintings…I think you are lying when you said you have only been painting a short time…your gorgeous paintings say otherwise! Donna, go quilt and LCC get with it on the movies already….times a wastin.ReplyCancel

    It’s just like Christmas! How fun and I can’t wait to see the amazing paintings that will be created using these beautiful colors! I am jealous though … my limited palette of FIVE colors is looking pretty boring right now. But I do have more palette knives than you! Hah! Ohh … I guess you do have one bigger than all of mine …ReplyCancel

    I am artistically challenged when it comes to painting, but I try to do my part in the art world by quilting. I know EXACTLY how you feel, but I usually feel that way when I find good deals in the remenant bin at the quilt store where material is sold. I’m sure you will find a use of the new size knife.ReplyCancel
