Supplies CAN Be Pretty!

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!

Tidying Up Before 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.

Check back in September for 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
