Stinky paint rags..

Wish I looked like this when I paint but alas I don't.  An artist has two sets of clothes, one set with paint on, the other set with paint about to get on them.

Come see how my rags hold up tonight. I will be doing a public portrait painting demo in Camarillo, CA., featuring the beautiful Cassie who is a favorite of mine.

And look how cheap this is??? NON-members of The Camarillo Art Club  can get to see all my secrets for just $5 as special visitors. Secrets which have cost me THOUSANDS to learn. Who could resist that if my clothing issues don't appeal.

And BTW, the artist pictured here is one of my favorite painters, Elizabeth Vignee Le Brun in a a self-portrait.  How the hell did she paint so well (look at her skin tones, blue veins and all), look like that, and have NO access to a shower??  Her rags might look swish here but I bet they were pretty stinky.

Good luck on your demo tonight--wish I could be there! I hear they had really good perfume back then (LOL).

Wish I could have come. But with Tyler and a bit of a bug... not to be. I'm sure you wowed them like you did when you demo'd for our club.

I hope to see you tomorrow but if I feel like I did this morning... I will miss.

Break a leg, you Rock Star you!!
