It's THYME to talk about BIG BRUSHES!

Last week I blogged about how I had walked into my 
STUDIO
to find my 
LIL Elf HiNkLeY
hanging from the 
LARGE RULER
that I have in there


If you missed that post you can read about it
I had been talking to him about
how I was going to be attending
NET
New England Traditions


NET is a trade show for Decorative Painters
Click on the link HERE to visit their website.

HiNkLeY
asked 
"what do you do there?"

I've been decorating my new STUDIO 
and 
found some old paint brushes, and wooden boxes


I told HiNkLeY that you could take classes there, 
meet other decorative painters, shop till you drop 
and 
best of all 
you could meet 
BIG BRUSHES!
He looked at me with a confused look on his face and asked
"How do you meet a paintbrush?"
I just smiled and explained to him that 
BIG BRUSHES
was a term given to the well known Artist/Designers in the industry.
I told him I not only planned to BUY some new brushes there
 but
 I hoped to chat with some 
BIG BRUSHES


I not only bought new brushes 
but 
I also bought some wonderful patterns and surfaces.
I met some old and new painting friends .
I especially enjoyed chatting with 
Cynthia Erekson and Kim Hogue
who are
BIG BRUSHES!
Well imagine my surprise when I came home
 and 
opened the door to my STUDIO to this!


Now where in the world did HiNkLeY ever get that BIG BRUSH?

It looks like the MAGIC is beginning to happen here.

Which reminds me I need to get back to my painting table!




Happy Painting!
Lynn

  6. Where on earth did Hinkley find a brush like that? And where did you find the last module of your desk, closest to the left, with all the sweet drawers in it?
