Ooops…I Did It Again
June 3, 2007 § 7 Comments
Some months ago I sold my set of pastels on eBay. I was tired of them, they were just so …dusty and ….messy and …damageable. (And we have these white carpets, you know…) Furthermore the finished paintings are so difficult to store and they always have to be framed. To cut it short, I have been very happy that I finally got rid of them.
Yesterday however I was visiting my local art supply store and came across this very, very cheap set of pastels. As I said they were cheap and I loved their touch and their grip on the paper… so I bought them.
Now, after having finished my first painting with them I’ve come to the conclusion that they are dusty, messy and damageable. The pigments are beautiful, but won’t stay solely on the paper and I just don’t know how and where to store this painting. (Not talking about the poor white carpet)
Why do we always make the same mistakes again?!
Maybe I’m addicted to art material.

I think there are just two kinds of people. Those who love licorice and those who hate it. I hate it . Nevertheless I think it’s looking pretty enough to be drawn :).
