Several weeks ago I stopped at a yard sale and found a set of water soluble oil paints for $5. Deal! I spent that day and the next painting with a media I had long wanted to try.
The first day I was in heaven; I had found my medium at last! (I’ve never really loved acrylics.) I dashed off several pieces I really liked.
But the second day, the honeymoon was over. Nothing worked or came together as easily as the day before.
And then my classes began and I haven’t been able to get back to the oils since.
And now I’m a bit scared to begin again.
And I ask myself, “Do I really need a new medium?”
And the answer is a definite, “No, I do not.”
