The Color Coral!
Okay, so I love the color coral! It is one of my favorite colors. I tried to find it in an oil paint medium at local art stores - zilch. I tried to make the color coral myself. I mixed my oils - vermillion with cadimum yellow - too dull. I threw in a touch of aliziron - that cooled it down when I wanted to keep it warm. Ugh, I could not do justice to my flamingo painting.
Then.. I went on line and googled it. The only online art supply store I could find that carried coral was Dick Blick. It was put out by a brand name I had not used before - Lefranc & Bourgeos. I decided to order it and hope for the best.
Well! I got it in the mail today and it is beautiful! It brings my flamingos to life! I will never try to mix a coral on my own again!

Thanks, Kim! I think blogging is going to be fun. I'm just going to be myself and blog as the mood strikes. I enjoy your blogs by the way - your voice is clear in your writing. I also like the rare occasions of sarcasm and wickedly wish they happened more often lol!

I thought I'd write a few thoughts on art, life and whatever else comes to mind.
