A new brand of acrylics ...

I love it when the afternoon sun shines on the pecan trees at the end of our dirt driveway, and the shadows from the crepe myrtles in our yard stretch out toward the pecans and the road beyond. The shadows are awesomely beautiful.

I’ve been trying a new brand of acrylic paints – New Masters Acrylics from Old Holland. They’re slower drying than other brands, and Old Holland has done a really good job of coming up with a color range that is very similar to oil colors. And they brush on super creamy and smooth ... I love ’em!
