Dusted Fondant, Raspberry Bellini, Proud Peacock…

Is it wrong that paint swatch aisles get me all excited? The names range from poetic to ridiculous, from sexy to hilarious. If I wasn’t an artist I think that would be my ideal job. Chief Paint-colour Titler.

I’m in the middle of trying to put my thoughts down about an important talk I went to about the economy and artists this week, but it’s a Sunday afternoon and my mind keeps wandering. In fact it wandered all the way to homebase… and my secret addiction reared it’s head:
