How Do I Love Thee...

I love paint brushes! Last week another artist and I were discussing our love of brushes. I buy new brushes all of the time but I especially love using a brand new brush when I start a new painting. That anticipatory feeling that something special is about to happen is mirrored in the beautiful shiny wooden surface and the bright - never to be seen again - clean bristles of a wonderful new brush. (I know, I have issues...)

Have a Creative Week!
