I'm getting ready for Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days...
and in order to stay inspired, I decided to buy some really pretty colors.
I usually paint with only primary colors, along with white, burnt umber, and sometimes black...
mixing my own colors...
but I wanted to have fun and try something new!
The paints aren't expensive, but a girl's gotta work with what she can, and these will work just fine.
While spending the day with one of my sisters, I found this tall chevron vase at Goodwill.
I love the color and it's great for my longest brushes.
I'm just about ready... all I need now is to clear off my table and make room at my easel!
Check back September 1st for 30 Paintings in 30 Days!

Before I begin Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge, I figured I'd get a few dozen vintage velvet pumpkins made and listed in my Etsy shop. Now that I have that taken care of, I can put those things aside and clear off some space for paints, brushes, and canvases. :)
There are three sizes available, as well as a few sets of stacked pumpkins. If you'd like to see them, click here for my shop link.
As for pumpkins in other mediums... I have several pumpkin paintings listed here.
