Art Supplies

As the result of visiting my local art supply store, I am now $90 poorer. (And they were out of two of the colors of oil paint that I need.) A roll of decent quality linen costs between $300-$400 these days, so if you're an artist planning a large painting, you have to figure in the cost of the linen and the stretcher bars (which are also going to add another $75-$100 bucks to the total) along with the paint.

On the plus side, my patron picked up the big giant hand painting and paid me for the commission, so I had something to pay the bill with. 

Grey and dismal today, and I've got prep work to do for the show.
