I have begun my new oil painting class and am so excited to get started! When my supplies arrived this evening via UPS I couldn't wait to tear open the boxes. I asked my Aaron to just grab a razor blade to slice open the seals. Well, he did more than that. He opened, found the packing list and proceeded to take each item out one by one and check them off. I was reaching in to open a box of tube paints and he said, "woa mom, I'm doing this." LOL! But I wasn't too let down by not getting to tear into everything and thought it sweet that he was enjoying checking out all the new stuff (even if he didn't have a clue as to what gesso is and what its used for).
My dilemma now is that I want to begin my first assignment: color charts, but if I start them at home, how do I get them to school without smearing the whole thing????? I hadn't thought of that!!! Any susgestions?
