Have you ever had a conversation with a paint brush?
I have.
I have told them that I will take good care of them and not leave them in water over night.
I have lied to many paint brushes in the past.
I promise this time will be different.

Thank you for your visit and your lovely comment, I was just looking at you're painting as I saw a new message. We must be blog angel sisters!

Hugs!

LOL...Oh yes,I know what you mean. My life as an artist is littered with the remains of so many poor paintbrushes. Dried up markers too...but somehow they don't give me the same kind of pangs as paintbrushes

Hi Jennifer,

How sweet...the golden tones are spectacular!

Laura Beth said...

So Cute! I too have lied to paint brushes...it doesn't go over well. Always end up getting new ones. ^_^

Heather said...

Ha! I think motherhood is very hard on brushes...how many times have I heard a squeal or a "Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaama!" and leaped up from my table and full brush...only to find it again hours later, all dried and ruined?
too many to count!

How strange that you would do a post on this because last night I left two paint brushes in water. Ayeeeeee! lol. That's a great painting.

AWwwwww Jen I think we all have. I talk to my whle artroom...Sad that room could tell all kinds of things if only it could talk. LOVE the painting sweetie xoxoxoxo

I am also guilty of lying to my paintbrushes. I hate that they are all curled up on the ends. thank goodness for being able to print up those weekly 40% any item Hobby Lobby coupons! I love your little angel. I want to do a few heart things, but first I shall paint a tribute angel for dear aunt Alice--I still keep thinking of her--maybe this will help!

PS Do you want me to call you EARLY if there is a snow day tomorrow?

Nicola said...

Yep I've been guilty of this too!! Loving your use of the crackle medium!! Very cute picture!!! Lovely tones as well! :0)

Janine said...

You are not alone (lol).
I am also not always good to my brushes.
I like your new painting.
Her wings look phantastic.

Ces said...

I came here via Silke's blog.

Hahahah! Yes I have. I talk to my art supplies. I kiss my paint brushes, I hug my canvases and I have slept with a tube of cobalt blue paint - well not in an odd way.

I am attracted to your paintings.
