This will be pretty short..i have some great products that i recommend for any sloppy artist.. I am queen of sloppy
Have you ever stayed up late and forget to clean your brushes well do i have the product for you..Windsor and Newton brush cleaner
here is a link
This product has saved me thousands of dollars i almost threw away a hundred dollar brush that was so hard that nothing would work, well after purchasing W & N this brush is almost brand new the bristles are soft and perfect it only took about 15 minutes. I let it soak to the quill for 10 minutes then i grabbed an old toothbrush and brushed off the rest of the chunked on paint..
This product costs between $15 to $30 last for months..
FEEDING THE WOLF
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on
He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. ... One
is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance,
self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority,
and ego. ... The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, truth,
serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, benevolence, generosity, compassion
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:
"Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.
If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost.
If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress.
There's not a liberal America and a conservative America - there's the United States of America.

Other worries are the kids well teens.i am constantly worrying if they are taking care of themselves, staying away from drugs,drinking and driving, i don't want to control but guide and if that means drilling it in their heads all the time to do the right thing then that is what i must do but there are constant reminders of my fears this town lost it's fair share in the past year due to drugs, accidental overdoses, suicides, and just stupid shit..I know i sound depressing, but i must cleanse myself and not keep this in anymore so please bare with me..Lets get on a topic that most can relate with our financial stability another worry of mine especially since i am a starving artist well not starving but i notice a hit in my sales due to this mess we are all in.. There are always hurdles and i always seem to skim them when jumping over but i do manage to get over..Ahh i do feel somewhat lifted just by venting, so today i plan on reworking my thought process slow steps, i will take the time and be grateful for what i have: my family if it were not for them who knows were i would be so thank you Kenny, Jonathan, Evan, Cassandra you all give me lots to be proud of, .. My home if it wasn't for you and John i would not no what to do thank you for giving my family comfort, and warmth.. John my x Thank you for my 3 beautiful children and your support emotional, physical, and financial you deserve to be happy and i know you are now..My friends you know a true friend never judges so Karen if you are reading this.I am blest!
