Oh, How I Love Phthalo Blue! (Green shade, in case you were curious...)
I felt like sharing with you a moment in the life of an artist (uh, sort of...). Yes, it pretty much involves wearing your paint. Since I never seem to have enough paper towels around (hello?!?!?!), I often use my painting jeans to absorb excess paint or water or other media while working. This usually works just fine. Tonight, however, while working with phthalo blue I managed to both soak through the paper towels (read: directly onto the carpet) and through the jeans (read: directly onto my skin). Eep.
Thank goodness for shag carpeting that forgives (and oxyclean to clean) and acrylics that forgive (and soap to clean)!!
