New favorites..

My art space is little, so I was looking for a little palette, I found this at Michaels, used my coupon, all of $6 so I am good to go, the instructions are a something to pay attention to when setting the palette up, so worth it.  It is called a stay wet palette, OMGD, pretty great. my paints blend like buda, ok, like butter, so smooth, I like just mixing those paints up, its  a pleasure. I love it when I find something that makes my life nicer.

Also  let me introduce you to my new favorite paints...   I love Jo Sonja paints, I had them sitting here in the studio for forever, not knowing how to use them, but I rediscovered them, very fun.

The Bunny Box...

My sister and I had gone to St Augustine a year ago and she spotted this bunny box in an antiques place, Lili wasnt sure if she wanted it,  so after a failed attempt to negotiate the price down, we left.
I figured I could paint her one.

 I looked to see if I  could find a box that was well made like this and I had done some sketches, I was planning to make her a bunny box.  I never was able to find one that was really well made and shaped like this.

But Lili kept thinking of the Bunny Box, she wanted to keep her Easter stuff in it.

    So, about a year later she finds herself back in St. Augustine and what is there in the Antiques store?
Yup the Bunny Box. 

  She brought it up for Easter, now I want one.
