A Few Things About Me

Here's a couple views into my sketchbook. I rarely begin a painting without first sketching it out in this book.

My painting apron is a Christmas cook's apron with little teddy bears on the trim. It's so ugly and it's covered in paint and I love it! :-)

I am very hard on my brushes so I don't buy the higher end ones because I know I'm going to trash them. Right now my favorite brush is one I've had since college and it's hammered, but I love it and will cry if I ever have to retire it.

This is how I lay out my pallet. And after a painting session, it looks like one big colorful mess.

I love my Prismas!! I like to see all my color options at once so I put them in this box and separated them by color.

I am obsessed with Sharpies. If I don't have at least 5 good tipped black ones in my studio, I start to go a little nutty!

I love this post and your new painting above!
Your sketchbook is so neat and pretty. I sketch things on whatever is near...envelopes, grocery ads...not good. I really love the little dog sketches.
