I'm soooo happy right now because I just received a canvas I've been wanting to get for a looooong time. At the local art store here, I would always check out prices for the canvases. The canvas size I've been looking at is a 24x48 and I already have a painting idea planned out along with what colors and everything. This canvas at times has been between $70-$50. Then for a while it was dropped to about $30. I could have bought it many times but I decided to wait. So I waited, almost 2 years of waiting. And now I have it <3 and it was totally worth waiting because today I only paid $12 for it. YAY!
Moral of the story, BE PATIENT. It can really pay off in the end.
