I spent some time straightening out my studio today. I still have plenty more to do, but I made a dent.Upon further reflection, I believe my self portrait bears a strong resemblance to Granny Clampett:
One of my studio clean-up projects is sorting through all my paints. I have lots of paint--cheap paint, expensive paint and everything in between. I finally know what brand I really prefer. This (pictured below) is my practice stash (red). I will likely never run out of practice paint. (and oddly enough....practice is just as rewarding to me with only black & white as it is with a complete palette).
