I have always painted in one way or another. Years ago I took a class on Decorative Tole Painting. It was acrylics and it was fun painting on wood cutout shapes but it seemed to be a fad and the market in my area faded away as well as the classes and the storage space for all the wood! I eventually gave all of my stuff away after getting busy working and raising kids. We also had a small business to run so personal time was a luxury I didn’t have at that time in my life. We raised our kids when we were young so I am still enjoying myself now that we are empty nesters.
When that happened about 10 years ago, I took back my time and my passions in life! I wanted to PAINT AGAIN! I went to the local Blick Art Supply and looked around for hours! It is like a candy store! I took the advice of one of the sales people (also artists) and picked up this student grade Pelikan Watercolor Set. I have had so much fun learning techniques and exploring color that I just wanted more! I have upgraded as time has went on to many different kinds of paint, both student grade, craft and professional paints. I just LOVE going into a Blick Art Supply Store!
