EGON SCHIELE BOOK
I just got a new book in the mail, ordered from Borders with a gift card I got for Christmas. Egon Schiele's work has intrigued me for some time and I'm enjoying learning more about his very short (born 1890, died 1918 of the Spanish flu) life. It is a big book, over 480 pages, with every piece of art on paper that is in existence. I love his use of line as well as his often mottled colors.
I also received my Daniel Smith after Christmas order (7 new tubes of watercolor with a freebie of a daVinci cosmotop-spin brush). Daniel Smith was having the freebie brush if you order 5 tubes of paint - they still may be offering that sale, if you're interested. I've never had a daVinci cosmotop-spin brush (http://www.danielsmith.com/Item--i-G-063-320
so I'll try it and let you know how it works. I already like the feel of it. Right now they are having a paper sale.
