Yesterday I went garage sailing out of boredom and felt like a bumble bee flittering from flower to flower,
one sale after the other, hunting for nothing in particular. Just looking.
|paints and brushes from garage sale|
I stumbled upon a great find, serendipity, finding something you were not looking for. Who could know what mysterious forces would drive me there? To a garage sale with no sign. Not even open. Still organizing table after table, to be officially open to the public not until tomorrow! I was two days early.
Lucky me, you won't believe what I found. A big box of brushes! 230 of them, some never used and all well cared for.
Exotic and plain brushes. Imported brushes with fine handles.
Skillfully made from the hair of wild animals and modern brushes from from nylon zoos. Some really old brushes. The lady selling her stuff was 82 years old and some of the brushes belonged to her mother!
|Just a handful of the pile I found!|
Did I mention the canvas? A starving artist's dream! Three feet wide and almost 150 feet long, an entire roll of canvas weighing over 150 pounds. I could barely get it into my truck.
|Bucket of paint brushes!|
Well, you must be curious as to what this costs?
$100. for everything. Now the only excuse will be me.
