I went to Michael's to pick up some molding paste so I could make texture plates for Gelli printing.
While browsing the shelves, I discovered that the Liquitex Professional Grade Spray Paint was on clearance, $3.49 a can down from $12. I bought seven cans, and left thinking maybe I should have bought more. Because, damn, that's a good price.
It brought back memories of doing this:
Buying spray paint is awkward these days because it's locked in a case. And you have to go get an employee to unlock the case. And then she stands there giving you the side-eye while you ponder the difference between cadmium red light hue five and cadmium red light hue three.
Surely I would have done Whip-Its in the aisle of Michael's Arts & Crafts had I not been supervised.
JUST KIDDING. Art is my drug, yo.
And it's summer and there's a three-day weekend coming up and now I have all of these cans of paint, plus some new nozzles in case mine clog.
Life is good.
Very, very good.
