New Toys

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as finding a gift in your Christmas stocking that is both just what you might have asked for had you been so bold, and something that you probably wouldn’t have thought to buy for yourself.  Okay, it really wasn’t in my stocking because I don’t hang one anymore, it actually showed up wrapped in tissue paper and bubble wrap inside a fairly oversized cardboard box, with a little tag that explained they traveled from Seattle to Atlanta to Oregon!  Lovely – and now I have an excuse to go to the art supply store and see what kind of additional mischief I can manage.  Some inks, perhaps, for that intriguing bamboo “brush pen”?  Or some big sheets of hot press H2O paper for the fluffy fat camel hair watercolor brush?  Fun!  Thanks again, Leigh Douglas!
