Oh this ordering art supplies on-line is such a guilty pleasure! With just one click of my mouse I am on a web site that offers up a myriad of colours! Oh the potential! Sometimes just seeing a new colour gets my juices going. And I have to have it. And I have to have it now! Just think of the potential…of a lll the things I could create with that one fabulous new type of beautiful, saturated colour.
Oh but it doesn't stop there. They are many colours offered on that one page. Opps, I am almost out of red. Wait my yellow is going hard in the tube. Click and update shopping cart and I now have a new refreshed palette on it's way. Wait again. What's this? A "Continue SHopping" button. Why yes, I may just do that. Just in case I am missing something. I have to take advantage of the free shipping. Would not want to forget anything and have to order again would I?
Remember that new shade? And that new idea I had to use it? Well, I now need a new surface, hmmm maybe a square canvas. Wait - maybe a primed panel? yes. Only I better order two. I may want to do a companion piece, oooo or maybe a series. Maybe I should order two. No wait maybe three or four? See where I am going with this?
So this time I can actually blame my spree on someone else (giggle). My lovely daughter (aka Foodess) purchased some M. Graham oils as a gift (no serious hinting here) and brought them with her on her most recent visit with my grandson (sigh). So now I need more what if colours! What if I want to paint a yellow flower, or a purple hat? See where it goes? See how it grows?
I swear, ordering on-line has to be the best thing that ever happened to art supply shops.
