Tools of the Trade - artist paint brushes

Copyright © 2010 Linda Apple

"Tools of the Trade" - sold
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.
