Can't wait to shop!

I can't wait to go shopping.  My list is long.  I want a couple odd shaped canvases, some mediums to go with my new water soluble set of paints and of course...some new brushes.  I'm not sure, but I think I may like shopping for art supplies as much as I like painting.

Unfortunately, shopping will have to wait a few days but that's okay because I still have a small pile of 5"x7" boards to paint on and of course there are always a few disasters that I can paint over if I get stuck.

Today I'm playing with a little one.  After working on big paintings, it's always fun to see the fast progress with a small one. 
Not finished yet.

Hope you're having a great day,
Bonnie Heather


  1. oh yeah i hear the music! i love paint supplies as well. my favorite thing is to buy a hundred small canvas panels (on sale of course) and think that i am going to paint a beautiful painting on each one! i can dream too can't i?

  2. I am not a shopping person.......I need to buy an outfit for an Oct. wedding and am not finding anything that looks nice on me. But, let me loose in the art supply store and watch out, let me at it, I'm good to go! Maybe I should wear canvas to the wedding. What do you think?

  3. I saw your art show at the City Hall today and it looks wonderful! Congratulations on a great show! Keep up the good work, Marlene

  4. Dear Bonnie,
    Hey, me, too, love shopping, any shopping! But only the problem is money does not stay with me well. Anyway, your shopping list sounds like a big money. Enjoy it. Look forward to your upcoming work!
    Kind regards, Sadami

  5. My problem is that I like shopping for supplies *more* than I like painting. Which is why I have lots of supplies, but not a lot of paintings... :)
    @Carol: you could always make some wearable art out of canvas, you know, make a vest out of a painting or something? Especially if it was a festive, romantic scene. ;)
