Why Sometimes Work Feels Like Play

Sometimes I have a really hard time focusing on my job. Like this morning...I set out to write about Nancy Reyner's Acrylic Revolution, which is on sale. First I wanted to get my hands on a copy, so I asked around the office to see where I could find one. Moments later, a colleague of mine dropped it off at my desk when I had stepped away for a moment to grab a yogurt. When I returned, there it was, on my seat.

As I flipped through the pages to look for the perfect excerpt to share with you, I got completely sidetracked. Sorry--I normally consider you, front and center, but the images and information I was coming across took me to my own selfish needs. And this was just in section one of the book, where Nancy describes how to paint with acrylic on so many different surfaces, and then follows it with a section on using just about anything to paint with. Feathers? Toothbrushes? I was ready to go home and play!

It's a good thing that I keep a sketchbook and some paint supplies at my desk for moments like this (shh...don't tell anyone!) But back to you, dear reader...I have good news. Acrylic Revolution, as I mentioned, is on sale at North Light Shop. It's part of a special value pack offer that includes Nancy's DVD of the same title. Bonus: you can watch a preview of the video here.

Together, the book and DVD are on sale for only $38.99 (saving you $19 off the retail price)--order your set today before they sell out. And in the meantime, here's a tip fromthe book:

"Acrylic has a two-part drying process. The first part, known as "dry to the touch," means the top layer of the paint skin has dried due to the evaporation of the water in the paint. The second part involves the polymer or acrylic in the paint, which takes several days to several weeks to fully cure. The actual curing time is dependent on the layer's thickness and environmental factors. During this curing time, it is important to not tightly wrap or store the artwork in a closed environment and to avoid exposing it to extreme temperatures."--Nancy Reyner
