Today I was trying to get some painting done and everything kept going wrong. I should have known not to try and force things to happen once that starts but I really wanted to get that stupid painting done. So first the turpenoid got knocked over and spilled all over and after I'd gotten that cleaned up, well, my easel collapsed.
Not my old easel. My new one. So the paintings damaged and scraped from getting knocked into the wall and then dumped on the floor. And when I looked at the easel to figure out why, both the front legs have huge cracks in them the way wood does when its gotten dried out. I called Mabef and talked to someone there, but all she told me was that they don't take customer service calls on the weekends and could I please email in pics of the damage. So I did that. But she also asked if I had registered the easel with them. Which means they have some kind of warranty. And I don't. We'll see.
In any case. I will not be painting again until this gets resolved. If it gets resolved.
All I know is I am extremely pissed off right now and I want to punch something. I hate days like this.
They shipped out a new easel. That...was much easier and nicer than I was expecting.
