Tools of the Trade - artist paint brushes

Copyright © 2010 Linda Apple

"Tools of the Trade"
oil on 1.5" deep canvas
9"x12"

After painting for over 40 years, I have purchased more
of these than I would ever like to think about. I still
have some brushes that are at least 20+ years that have
become old friends.
I can always seem to find a use for them,even when they
are worn out. I get very attached to them and unless
they are completely fallen into pieces,which is rare,
I never seem to throw them out.

Ellie - Anique Teddy Bear

"Ellie"
oil on canvas - 8"x8"

One of my old antique bears. I have quite a little family of them
that sit in my cupboard and watch me paint.
I began a series of portraits on them a few years ago and haven't
done any in a while. There is just something about the old ones
that I love.......no matter how many I see, they seem to acquire
their own unique personality.
