Stocked up

I love starting the day with a delivery of art supplies to unpack. So much artistic potential!

This time the delivery was mostly little canvases and canvas boards. I started the practice of daily painting about three months ago, and I’ve found it to be something I want to continue for a while. I enjoy pushing myself to experiment with new subjects, colors, and layouts in these small-scale works. Now I am all set for a couple more months of daily painting.

I realized I made a mistake  – I got ten 10 x 15 cm canvases instead of the 15 x 20 cm canvases I meant to order. These 10 x 15s are so tiny! Not sure what I’m going to do with them, but I’ll figure something out.

Do you enjoy shopping for art supplies? I think I like it just as much as using them.

    Bookishness is next to godliness, and painting is quite literally, True Art.

    It is, well, ART.

    Good Luck with the small canvasses.

    Will they be more valuable or less?

    Diamonds are small, but very valuable.

    Good question. Small paintings are priced higher per square centimeter than large ones, but their total price is of course much lower per painting. So far I can’t say I’ve painted any diamonds. Not yet. :)

  4. Enjoying shopping for art supplies is an understatement heh, I love it!

    Unfortunately there aren’t a whole lot of proper craftstores here and those that we do have are pretty overpriced. I used to pick up art supplies during my many visits to the States back when I traveled a lot still. Shoppign online works so so, small things aren’t too bad but the larger items just get too expensive to ship cause of added S&H. :(

    I am positive you’ll come up with something nice to do with the smaller canvasses!

    I suppose I’m pretty lucky to have the delivery options I have. All the stores in the city are pretty expensive, but there’s one outside the city that delivers for a very low fee (even bug stuff!).
