So, I had a pretty awesome day today aside from walking 4-5 miles in the Florida heat at around 95 degrees Fahrenheit and nothing to consume except tons of liquid hydrating or energy/diet drinks. No wonder I'm shedding weight like crazy... well, I guess it's good for me as long as I'm careful.
I did make it down to the music supply store and the art store and that is definitely GOOD NEWS for everyone! My old art teacher, Robert Morrissey, still teaches painting classes downtown to the best of my knowledge in the Winter Haven Worship Center so guess where I'll be on Thursday mornings. So what I did was pick up the watercolor side of the list instead of oils (UGH! so expensive: paints, tons of them, separate brushes, canvases, medium, thinner, rags... ) or acrylics (I have a basic set.) and I have NICE brushes, including my personal favorite, the liner brush and a fan brush.
I also got the typical 9x11 140 lb paper, a block of 15 sheets, masking fluid, a sponge, and one single Pigma pen for inking when done, ha. I am going to recoup the costs by auctioning these off. What's the best place to sell my traditional shit? Furbid?
I also got a NICE microphone, a pop filter, a penny whistle to play with while I wait for my new autoharp to arrive. I put the reserve fee on an Oscar Schmidt 21 Chord autoharp so wish me luck ... I was like, haha, "Heart Notes should be a music pony" aka this is something I have always wanted to do before I die: learn a musical instrument that makes my heart beat faster just thinking about playing slow and haunting melodies.
In other words, get thee done to do what you've always wanted to do 'for reals,' I guarantee you will feel 200% better about yourself about actually taking the initiative.
