I would like to introduce you to my best find to date: the 16$ izzle [also known as an easel]. It has a few scratches and nicks but I love it all the same. It came with a complete set of untouched paints and 4 fantastic brushes. *drool* I was practically dancing out of the goodwill and forced a few high fives out of my friends. I mean...16 bucks?!?!? I promptly texted my mom and she sent me a fit pumping emoji icon. Well said mother.
I haven't painted in a long time and even then it was mixed medium but I supposed I'm just going to have to hike to the top of a mountain just to paint the view!
