Happy Mother's Day!

Yes I know it is next weekend but it came early for me....I took matters into my own hands.  I often end up with flowers, dinner and such but seriously...what is the best way to my heart? New art supplies of course :) 

I only meant to get a new drawing pad for my life drawing class but of course there were sales on.  So..... I got new brushes.  I really did need them as I did not have any smaller bristle brushes and I love them!  I was wrecking my synthetic brushes trying to push the paint around for my underpaintings and studies. The syntheic are better suited for detail and finishing work so now I have both which makes my life so much easier.  They came with this nifty little brush case for travelling and did I meantion, they were on for 50% off!!! I think I showed tremndous restraint.

I also picked up a larger Masterson palette for storing my paint.  I had put this off as I already have 2 boxes but of course they were not the right size for my glass palette so was making due.  I also picked up a round hand held palette which fits perfectly into the Masterson box so I can just pop it into the box at the end of a session and put in the freezer until the next day, priceless :)
