barbara sent me some of her extra special watercolors. my set has really expanded thanks to her and i'm enjoying trying out the different brands. i have a new palette that holds 48 half-pans which is perfect. i'll show that very soon.
in the meantime, here is the one barbara put together for me. such succulence!
i ordered a subscription to a monthly letter from paris. my first one arrived and i enjoyed finding the envelope in my mailbox when i got home one day this week. look how pretty:
it's only 1 page, but i found it captivating. HERE is janice's blog, a new favorite.
here is something else that will send you running to your studio. i love the quietness of it.
and also...i got a special envelope from russia.
And Also No. 2: a perfect book arrived which revealed itself as the new covers for my next sketchbook slash illustrated visual journal.
and while i'm at it...
another handwritten letter/map arrived today welcoming me to my summer cabin & rowboat.
