Monday Photo of the Week - "Something New"
OK, photos are up. Oh my, this is different. Anyway... our challenge this week was to photograph "something new" so I am sharing my very favorite kind of new thing - new art supplies! (Picture me rubbing my hands together, grinning maniacally... LOL!)
These shells were sent to me by my good online friend Linda (oh wow... another new thing and that was so easy!) for no other reason than that she is a wonderful person doing something wonderfully nice. I don't know whether it's more fun to fiddle with the little bumps on the sea urchin or stroke the beautifully glassy inner survace of the little spiral shell - they are so much more beautiful in real life than in this photo. The cut-away shell is already designated for another sea spirit project. Now I just need to work up the courage to get started.
I picked up these little canvases last weekend on a whim because they are irrisistably cute. I wish I had put something else in the photo to indicate scale - they are *very* tiny. Now I just have to think of something to do with them.
I think my very favorite part of being an artist is buying new art supplies, LOL.
