Isn't it beautiful????? *sigh* It'll be here tomorrow and I can hardly wait. This was one of those purchases I kept putting off over and over again, but my achin' back finally had enough! LOL! This beauty will even allow me to work flat too, so I can go from working on the background and just flip it up and paint the face and do detail work. Woo hoo!!! Now my little studio space will really feel like a real artist's studio. Yea! And I'll be able to do paintings as big as 44" tall...way cool! Not that you're gonna be seeing lots of honkin' huge paintings from me any time soon. Those boogers would take some kinda of wrangling to figure out how to pack and ship. Maybe I'll have to go to the pros on that one. I hear UPS has a packing service for artwork....may have to check that out for future reference...hmmm.
Now all I have to do to is clean up in here and find room for it. ha, ha...now that's gonna be a toughie. I'm already kind cramped in here with my computer and my big printer....but I find a way somehow. I just gotta!!! :D
Here's a new find for me...a watersoluble graphite pencil, "Sketch & Wash", by General's and it can be found at Michaels Art & Craft stores in the drawing section. I've been a big fan of Stabilo Marks All graphite pencils for almost a year now because when I'm using it on my canvas I can just use a wet paper towel to erase with, but have been looking for an alternative because many times my local art store has been out of them lately. And lo and behold I find these a few weeks ago during a morning trip to the craft store. Plus they're almost half the price!!! Woo hoo!!! Score!!! :D
