This is only a little bit of them, and they all come by mail so I let my fingers do the walking rather than my legs. I bought new Black paper albums I really like, some new multi media paper I semi like, more of the precious Gum Arabic, new tubes of Gouache by a different maker, more brushes because I wear them out (kind of like your poor fingers), boxes of art gum erasers, more woodless pencils in all grades. A great big bottle of Black Ink for pen and ink drawings...and more! Plus I got some of that bark paper that Earlywine uses and she gave me her source. I couldn't post for I don't know how many days because I couldn't stand. I was so mad at my body this morning I took the 4" Bandage and taped my knee so I could at least kind of stand with my mom's walker and took pain pills, and then took the pictures. I can't kill the pain, and this is the first year I've been this bad so I'm kind of pissed off desperate. I want to go in the studio and paint, but I'm afraid of falling. I am happy about the art supplies, and as long as I can keep drawing and painting I will hold onto my sanity! Life is just very changeable and iffy right now. I'm glad I can always paint. I'm working on an Owl on a branch, and another of a lion drinking water. I love your Koala bear...he looks very relaxed and happy. Take good care of you and yours!
Poor Anne .. the doctors should do something you can walk again and be painless .. I'm glad you've got so many new supplies and hopefully when it gets warmer outside you can walk to the studio and paint there
So do I, and I buy them on line at Jerry's Artarama or ASW Express every year between Christmas and New Years when all the winter closeout sales are on. The discounts are wonderful, the Super Sales are extreme, and you can buy two or three times the art supplies for half the normal cost! Yaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!
You have to put your and your supplies first, and know that this is the time to buy! Then keep waiting until they get cheaper and cheaper then spring your trap, and get your art supplies. If you don't put your art first...no body else will. You are worth it! Start now...put money away...and by the end of 2012 you will have plenty of money for your hearts desires. Remember...you are NOT allowed to touch the ART money for dining out, kids lunches, husband's new shirt, or Aunt Martha's present! It's YOUR ART money! and you have to use it for ART~ Save for your work! and then there will be no more Take care of you! :cheer
