Paint Surgeon

I sometimes think I should have gone to medical school and become a doctor.  I think it would be wonderful to be a healer. 

However, let's get real. I chose to go to art school over medical school and I was never very good in science class.  

This morning I did get to perform surgery on my watercolor paint tubes and the operation was a success.

I needed to make up a new palette because I am taking a workshop in Vermont this week with Susan Abbott and I wanted to try out all the colors shes uses in her paintings.  I found I had many of the colors she suggested but some were old and hardened in their tubes. So I performed "paint ectomies" and removed the dry paint and put it in pans in my palette.
