Did you get any art supplies for Hanukkah, Christmas, or Kwanzaa?
I got a lovely watercolor book of Hazel Soan's work (The Essence of Watercolor) from my step-daughter, Moe! I love it!
Ms. Soan loves watercolor and just reading about her enthusiasm about the medium makes me feel energized again and want to put brush and paint to paper!
My little artist grandgirl, Alaina, was happy with her new block of Arches paper, a new set of brushes (DaVinci Cosmotop Spin rounds) and her bamboo brush holder. She said, "This is just like your's, grandma!" We'll be planning a painting day soon.
We extend our celebrations to today, when my sister and BIL come over to visit, exchange presents, and play Monty Python's Monopoly game: "Bring me some shrubberies!!"
