Artist's Description

what paints do I use..when I paint
well usually a combination of very expensive and very inexpensive paints
even house paint when there is nothing else to use.. I will utalize anything and everything at hand..
Of course there is nothing so beautiful as a new tube of fresh expensive paint..and matisse and Atelier are a couple of favoutites..
I Like the Matisse acrylic because it’s
thick and pastey…It looks like amazing and real paint..hee!! also
mont marte
Atelier ( a very expensive gift from one of my my beautiful sisters)’thanks for that!!!..beautiful sisters I have

Occassionally I try my hand at some oil colours ..though this is quite rare for me to do this.. It’s not the price that puts me off oils..but the drying time..It’s too long for me..I have no patience.. hhha!!
I often use ordinary
house paint when there is no other paints around..and plus the fact that I just like the consistency..and some of the great colours..
kids poster paint
enamel paints (very sticky and messy stuff to work with though)
and fluro paints can be fun to try some experimental work..
sometimes I even mix some natural mineral stains that bob has in the pottery shed..with a bit of oil..and voila..

whatever I do..It always ends up a big mess..with paint everywhere ..all over my hands and clothing..I have a lot of clothes here with paint stains on them.. even after many many washings..proving that most of my work is very permanent..hee!!

Ahhh..painting ..don’t you just love it..and Isn’t it the most rewarding and the most frustrating thing there is..well one of the most frustrating..hhhheee~!

happy painting
