"Cozy in a Bowl" --- SOLD

Sharon asked me today about taking paints on an airplane. What I do is wrap all my paints up in a plastic bag and then attach an MSDS sheet from my supplier (you can print this off of your supplier's website - it basically says what the paints are made of and that they're not flammable). On the outside of this bundle I write "artist COLORS." Apparently "paint" raises a flag but "color" doesn't. : / Then I put all this in my checked bag. I've had my bags searched a few times, by a few airlines, even gone through customs, and no one's ever said or removed a thing. I'll be doing it again when I leave for Santa Fe next week.

You go,woman!
I'm looking forward to hearing about the Santa Fe class.
The tomatoes are lovely, too.

That's really good to know. Thanks for letting us know how you travel with your supplies. I've been wondering about that for a trip this winter. I guess that just means that turps are the only thing you can't bring on a plane?

And as always, I love the paintings. I really liked seeing some of your landscapes while you were in Germany. I thought the "wipers" were well done... but what do I know? The creator is always the pickiest about her own work.

What a great use of your reds. My favorite part is the plate and how you toned it down to really make the tomatoes pop. Wonderful Darling!!!
