A Serious Relapse

Just when I thought I was getting better -


I have had a serious relapse of BEAS Disease (Buys Excessive Art Supplies)

I was just browsing around on E-Bay and there was this auction for 90 tubes of Winsor Newton 5ml watercolors and some how I bid on them- and then I guess I won the bid -and then I got all these tubes with 56 diffefent colors--for about 25 or 26 of the colors I got a single tube -for 24 of the colors I got two tubes -and for 6 colors I got three tubes -


but they are luscious and I have been experimenting see Brushy Creek #3 or4


And they were a great buy $107.00 which included shipping -

I am sorry to see your Beas disease has not been controlled. Are you going back IN, for more agressive treatment this time?
I had a surprise Beas breakdown. It was eBay too.
Colored Pencils. Derwent pencil sets where up and
I bid as a joke to myself and there was one Prismacolor.
38 in the Derwent, and 48 in Prismacolor. I havebeen reorganizing. Putting my supplies in order to use them all up. Take care let me know how the new treatment goes,
I am taking 2nd level cure.

Oh my GOSH! My first 6 5ml tubes of WN watercolors cost that much! Can't wait to see more of your beautiful watercolor paintings.

Your work is lovely....and this blog absolutely hilarious!! I didn't know it had a name, this BEAS thing.....I share the malady with you. And, I too succumbed to the very same auction of W & N 5ml water color tubes awhile back. I can't tell you that it will be the end....my collection of watercolors only started there. I have since added several more to the collection including a series of Daniel Smith metallic and iridescent watercolors.....have had to start a third tray of 24 to hold them all. Sigh......I share your pain. ;o)

I've got it bad too. I just bought a bunch of hand dyed fabrics yesterday. I don't need fabrics. I have too much already and seldom use fabric anymore - but it was so pretty! Maybe the only cure is a fallen economy!

Simply ENJOY them!

I feel your pain. I am the same way. My husband says I have art supply tourettes.
Watercolors! Pencils! Paint Brushes! Paper! Pens!

ROTFL! That is like my disease of going into an office supply store and going to town.

Well... I can think of WORSE vices to have.

I think if you are HAPPY with your choice, and have no shame, regret or remorse, you aren't "in your disease."!! Love your floral from lasst time, too.

Some MORE stamp pads in colors I don't have... a Martha Stewart dual tipped pen... Why? I have no idea... maybe because it was only $1.88...
