This collection was created when I purchased some new art supplies. Specifically the Golden SoFlat Zing collection.
I had previously painted in acrylics for a few years. I sold 100s of paintings before burning out in 2005.
I had started painting according to what was selling which was my horses and it stole the joy from my artwork.
Also, I started doing hair making women beautiful became my creative outlet.
When I tried painting over the years the set up and clean up of acrylics was too time consuming, it was a drag and I didn’t have time to finish a painting. I think I painted less than 10 paintings between 2005 and 2016.
When I picked up a paintbrush and started painting again, in 2016, it was faces… as in facepainting.
I painted faces with my granddaughters at events and THAT was tons of fun but my granddaughter lost interest and thus so did I.
I started painting in watercolor around 2018 and completely fell in love. I have been in love with watercolor for years now.
I saw this collection from Golden Acrylics called SoFlat, the palette is called Zing. I decided to try it out because I had never used the artist quality acrylics by Golden, I used to paint with Liquitex basics and/or Art Advantage because artist quality paints are so expensive right?
Well I do not drink, smoke or gamble and I sell my artwork so FOR REAL : YOLO use the damn best quality art supplies money can buy right?!
That’s where I am at now in my life. I am totally here for this 12 ounces of paint for $50 Golden Zing = YES!!!
I follow an artist who sells her work for thousands of dollars and I am SHOCKED that she paints with Liquitex basics not even the artist quality line like sheesh, what is that?
I think that is all the background on this collection! Thanks for taking an interest in myself and my art!
