Because being older does not mean having no value

I need to license my art for greeting cards! A little Monday afternoon whimsy, so I can say I was productive today!
If I have to be disappointed in my Mungyo Gallery Artist oil pastels, it’s for the fact that their blues suck. But they are not alone. None of the cheaper oil pastel sets have a good sky blue color. So disappointing! The best blues I’ve found thus far are with the Pentel set, but they are so hard texture-wise, and I’ve been spoiled by the lipstick-smooth Korean pastels! Greens are decent, but my blue flowers suffer. There has got to be another way…

Paring Down

I’ve decided that I don’t need 6 sets of towels and washcloths since nobody ever comes to visit me, so I’m saving my best ones for me and giving away my older ones - washed of course - to Goodwill. I’ll just keep two, and alternate for when one set is in the laundry hamper. I’ve got a set of towels from back when I was into my red-black-green phase almost 20 yrs ago, still good shape but after 20 yrs your tastes change. I like blue now, medium blue, French blue. I may buy one more good set though, like my Waverly towel, hand towel, & washcloth, because you can put off washing & save money if you don’t have to wash every day or even every week. The same with kitchen towels - I don’t know how many of those I have, but I really only need two! And I want a different color.
