With Cath battling Cancer and me recovering from surgery, we weren't able to get much work done the past six months.  To compensate, I sold odds and ends of stuff we had in our loft along with a few truck loads of unpainted  furniture, work tables, misc frames... to make ends meet.  My heart is still not in it and the depression has me frozen in a zone I can't seem to escape.  I physically find it hard to move.  I'm pulling away from everyone which I know is not healthy but it's all I can do right now to just be.  I'm not sure my heart will ever be back into my work but I have to get out of this funk and at least try to start painting again.

I have a THING for brushes!

Paint brushes, wax brushes, buffing brushes, foam brushes, artist brushes ~ you name it, I have a thing for them and have become a wee bit finicky over the years in what I choose to paint furniture.  I've learned through my own experiences that using the right brush makes all the difference in a quality finish.  Below I've listed my absolute favorite brushes that I couldn't do without.
