Some of my favorite art supplies

| 30 May, 2018 06:40

As I teach I am asked what supplies I recommend.  My first answer is buy the best you can afford.  The old adage "you get what you pay for" absolutely applies here.  

The paint I use is Golden Paints.  I love them for their strong pigment plus their vast selection of colors.  They have heavy body, open, fluid and high flow acrylics.  A plus is they are always available to answer questions.  Check them out!

The resin I use is Art Resin.  The clarity of their resin is excellent!  A great company to work with! 

I feel that the quality is important to not only me but my clients.

Sebastian Riverfront Art Festival 2016

I was ready for this lovely 2 day event however the weather was not.  Beautiful first day and then the storm hit early Sunday Morning.  Unfortunately, my tent was practically destroyed.  Fortunately, I only lost one painting.  Much work to be done to be ready for Mt Dora Art Festival but I will get there.
