"Strawberry-zilla" --- SOLD
IMPORTANT: I am having technical issues with Ebay. It's their problem but they tell me it will take 5-7 days to resolve. So, meanwhile I have researched other auction sites and have posted this painting on ebid.net. It is a reputable site so I don't anticipate any problems. Feel free to check out my feedback ratings on ebay (since I don't have any on ebid yet). Thank you for bearing with me through this!
The mystery of the paint gift was never solved - so I'll assume it was promotional (from M. Graham and co). I have been using it the past few days and like it but not more than my regular Utrecht paint. That may be because I'm used to the consistency of my regular paint - familiar with what it can do. The M. Graham paint is ... looser? It's more like warm butter, where my regular paint is a little stiffer. I find I can go a little thicker with my regular paint, which I like. But, not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I am still experimenting with it and will report if my opinion changes.
