I just got a little box of goodies from Dick Blick:

1. Two American Easel wood painting panels
- one is 11 x 14 and one is 12 x 16
(for future paper paintings/collage a la Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson - and check it out = she has a new hardback book of her technique that shares all the info on how to do this - I'm going to buy one (it takes 10-15 days to do the print-on-demand from Lulu) since I have the panels and now can go for it!
2. A new Winsor Newton Sceptre Gold Flat - 1"
- I needed a new, nice flat that will hold a razor point so going to try this on recommendations from other artists

3. A box of fun decorative papers - may not use them in the collages on panels but I may use them for other fun things

I'm just getting around to using the gift card my Mom got me for my birthday in January - sometimes I can be frugal and conservative with free money - but then I just have to have something new and interesting.
And today is a cleaning day so probably no more work on the last crows painting although I did miskit over them for more drizzly work to come...

Just stopping by to say hello. I've gotten WAY behind in blog reading the past month -- love all your crows and look forward to seeing even more!! Enjoy your new supplies!!

Christiane Kingsley said...

Youpee! We all know that you will put these goodies to good use and we are in for more nice paintings and experiments from you.
Happy cleaning...but watch that back!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

OOH--have fun with your goodies, and don't forget to post your "doings."

Carol King said...

Isn't it fun when you get a box of goodies delivered. Can't wait to see what new work comes from these!

All looks interesting but sorry to hear about your back. Seems to be happening a lot of late (check out Robyn's blog) - trust it goes out of fashion soon!!
Very surprised you remembered my sheep piece. Yes, its true we find inspiration from each other and thats what I love about being a blogging artist.

Hi, Chris, always good to hear from you - hope you post some of your work soon :)
Christiane, Elizabeth, Carol and Joan: No idea what I might do with these but I'll do something soon - think I'll break out of the crow mode, though. Joan, not sure who Robyn is...but I may just not be aware of her real name at her blog? Anyhow...I think it's aging that getting us aching!
