Well yesterday was class which lasted from 10 - 2:30 and so tired when I came home. Then today was watercolor society meeting and now have to type up the minutes and download the photos and try to remember everything the guest artist/speaker said and did - which was very cool because it was about Oriental Brush Painting techniques and she had such lovely things from carved chops to paper to those wonderful brushes and brush hangers and ink blocks and...well it's a whole technique built about patience and beauty and serenity :)
But I wanted to share what I got in the mail yesterday from Cheap Joe's. This is my belated birthday present (used by gift certificate from Mom). A pack of 5 sheets of Twinrocker paper, feather deckled edge, 16" x 20 coldpress + a Tony van Hasselt "Magic Muslin" brush (it's got a great sturdy round handle that short for moving the brush around and it's ox hair that's so soft (how can ox hair be so soft?) + a Size 10 Escoda Kolinsky sable brush! My PALS friends talked me into this one over another Kolinsky, saying the Escoda brand is just fantastic.
Art supplies make me so happy!
