I got some art supplies!

You know how you kind of have a fond memory from childhood, like about a wheel-eraser or a little stump you used to blend up pencil lines? Like that you probably found in the desk of a teacher or old school principal? I had that feeling the other day when I came across this Pink Pearl eraser on the checkout counter at Heigenmann's Car Audio. I was signin' the receipt for the sound system on the new Platinum Edition Escalade and I saw it there. Instantly I was transported back to a time of simple things, when I could spend all day just scribblin' and figurin' out how to draw a porch or a belly. I immediately went home and ordered a ton of art products on-line.

I also went to Purple Gypsy Art Supplies and picked up a few paints and sketchbooks and stuff, since I really couldn't wait to get back into the art game. I was debating between this one oil paint set and this other oil paint set, and just like outta the blue an employee came up and we hit it off real well, we were completely connecting. She had this fun scarf tied around her neck and she was completely like that fun chick in Fisher King, kinda kooky but really intuitive, you know? It was like, I didn't know anything about art supplies, but I had the basic language and mindset so that we made art-concept sense to each other, and it was like there was this chasm between us, but we both wanted the chasm to be smaller! Anyhow, I got her number and we're gonna make bread together on Sunday. I know...bread! Man, that is killer. I was totally unprepared for that. I'm really into this chick. Her name's Scarlet.
