The weather was really odd today. Hot of course, but it would rain and clear-up, rain and clear-up. It would rain in other parts of town...howling rain, but it would be completely dry here. It was difficult to adjust to the changing light. Ugh. Going slowly as usual. I was very happy to be with my brushes today. Only had about nine hours in it today. I'll have to increase that to get it done in time. Back to my brushes.

Just wanted to post that I have added a couple of documentary reviews. I've been exceptionally busy and just haven't had anything to post besides "I'm painting". Back to my brushes.

I'm guessing you might think I like potato chips. Well, you wouldn't be wrong but that isn't why I am featuring this product. I believe in value, both in paintings and life in general. So when I stumbled upon this little gem I knew I had to share this two-fer. Yes, you can enjoy any number of flavors of this potato product, but when you are through with the chips - keep the container. Remove the paper from the outside and clean it with some Dawn dish detergent (great for getting rid of greasy residue) and voila! - you have a wonderful container for carrying your brushes to workshops or plein air painting. In fact you could carry a few tubes of paint in it as well, pencils, erasures, etc. The size of the container makes it so versatile. So there is your tip for the day. Oh and by the way, the cost ranges from about $1 to $1.20....and you get a snack too. Give it a try, all you have to lose is the calories. Back to my brushes.
