Do you believe I've made it to number 18?
I haven't painted one every day but from the beginning I gave myself permission to skip if I needed to.
Recently, I did feel myself getting close to that wall where I just want to turn around and lean against it and slid my self down and sit there.
Sit there rather than hurdling over it.
I didn't jump over it but I did walk around it.
|Modigliani reference and Sta-Wet Palette|
Do you remember me telling you about the big new Sta-Wet Palette?
Well I did; however, I don't think I ever came back to tell you that I pretty much hated it.
I didn't tell you that because I didn't think I gave it a chance.
I loaded it up with paint and then didn't paint.
That doesn't work.
It gets smelly and waste a lot of paint.
But in fact, it was just too big and cumbersome for my space.
I couldn't figure out how to get comfortable with it.
Imagine my surprise when I was at Michael's last week and saw this smaller one and snatched it right up.
I wasn't surprised to see it.
I was surprised that I had to have it.
Anyway, I have used it on these tiny faces and so far, I love it.
Could be because I'm painting just about every day.
I know it is because the size fits me.

|Face No 18|
Just in case you are wondering,
I am showing the face at the top small because it is more like the actual size.
Then showing large at the bottom so you can actually see it.
I really do like this one.
