small purse failure leads to French colorists

my latest attempt to convert to the small purse format failed miserably with the loss of a pair of perscription sunglasses (that wouldn't fit in so had to be hand carried) as well as a business card case. So today I bought a mid-sized purse that holds the sunglasses, the cell phone, the bus cards which are really ATCs, and the wallet as well as has a little pouched attached that has a built in mirror for lipstick & such. At the purse store, TJ Maxx, there were some remaindered books. I found an inspiring book on Robert and Sonia Delauney. I love it that they are portrayed as an art couple and with lots of Sonia's work. I was working on my painting syllabus' color section suddenly visions of Delaunay color was bouncing around my cranium. What a good and timely find. Of course, now I'm making Delaunayesque ATCs. Also I found my stash of gouache and acrylics so I don't need any more paint. What I do need is a little circle template that architects use or an nice sturdy compass. Will go to Miller Blueprint on the morrow.
