"My paints are here, my paints are here!"
Yes, that's how I feel when I get that new box of paints from Daniel Smith. I have been using Dan Smith Acrylic and Oil paints since college, being that it was our local choice for art supplies when I was attending the U of W. Yes, in a pinch, I'm happy to use Golden, and I also like supporting my new local paint supplier M. Graham (Oregon) and often buy a large tube of white when I don't have other colors to order. I love the buttery creaminess of a good paint! MY NEW FAVORITE COLOR: Buff Titanium! I love it. Look for it to appear in many of my new paintings this Summer!
For other misc. art supplies what do I do?? I buy SCRIP for my local craft supply store "Creative Crafts". They are a great locally owned store, and when I buy their gift cards through the local elementary, they donate 15% to the school!
All supplies are ready and accounted for.... ready, set, PAINT!
