Why I'm getting rid of my supplies

If you like talking about or reading about Art supplies, you will love my semi-regular email, Art Letters, where I talk about ways to add creativity into your life :) Join now to get 5 free Ocean wallpapers sent to your email!

Hey friend! I'm back with Art Letters after a 2 month break! And you know what I did in those two months? I gave away my paints!

Well, obviously not all of them :)

I am a self-diagnosed art supplies hoarder, and at the same time don't like my home cluttered. You see my problem? So this past weekend, I picked out all the huge tubes of paints that I had bought but not used more than twice, you know, the colours that look good in tubes but you don't know what to do with them on the canvas? And I gave them away.

The only way to waste Art supplies is by not using them. Hopefully now someone is letting those tubes of paint live their purpose! I still have varnishes, jars of gessos and more paints that I know I will never get to. What do you think I should do with them?

Here are some updates:


Show Your Work by Austin Kleon: A long overdue read, and it is inspiring me to stop blaming the algorithm and give Instagram one more chance.


I'm going through a phase of childhood nostalgia by watching One Tree Hill again. (Okay, you can stop cringing now!)


Well, art is slow right now, but I'm busy planning my little one's second birthday party! (How is she 2 already!?!)
