I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know that you can take a virtual tour of the Watercolor USA 2020 exhibit at the Springfield Art Museum. Press the following link and you can enjoy the exhibit from your own living room! For those of us in self-isolation, (Day 124), this is a real treat. Link to Virtual Tour. Just use the arrows on your screen to virtually maneuver through the museum. Enjoy! Back to my brushes.

Something I really enjoy doing is taking the time to get my paint well-mixed. Yes, I have said before that it is a rather zen-like occupation. But, let me take a moment and share that the best way I have found to add water to paint in the wells on my palette. It is by using this: A condiment bottle. Yep, spend a whole whopping 99 cents and purchase one of these see-through bottles. Fill it with distilled water and voila! - the best money you will spend on supplies for the foreseeable future. Let me share that, many years ago, I started with a spray bottle. My own experience is that it was messy and inconsistent...not enough control, therefore I was not satisfied. I moved on to a small squeeze bottle that I found at a local craft store. Much better, but the size was too small. It only held enough fluid to go around the wells one time before I had to refill it. So one summer I was standing in the check out line at the grocery store and noticed a see-through condiment bottle. Not red, not yellow, but clear. It is perfection. I hope you will give it a try and you find it enjoyable too. Now go mix up some color. Back to my brushes.
