I am a hoarder.
After a very timely conversation the other week I heard about the 100 Things Challenge. I'm not about to get rid of everything down to only 100 possessions in a month (maybe in a year?!) Instead I am committing to getting rid of one item a day for the whole of August.
Item no. 1
A tube of dried up gouache
|Time for 20 year old paint to go...|
I bought this in 1993 when I had just left 6th form and was about to start a year long Art and Design Foundation course at Swansea Institute before going to Uni. I remember getting the materials list and being really excited about starting the course.
That's 20 years ago!
Since then it's lived in Swansea, moved to Portsmouth in 1994 where it went to uni, staying and living for 13 years before moving to Bristol in 2007.
And in all those years since not used or loved. Just sitting waiting. No wonder it had gone hard. ;-(
