Here is my entry for today. It includes a map underneath it all, plus some white gesso, Golden Fluid acrylic paints (LOVE LOVE LOVE Golden Fluid acrylics by the way), colored pencils, and Sharpie marker. I can't get away from that Sharpie marker, I love to put it on everything. Although, I find that the ink runs dry when in prolonged contact with the dried acrylic. I have a pen in my collection called "edding 300, marcador permanente." It's wonderful. I need to find one with a smaller tip, though. It seems to handle the acrylic with no problems and the paint doesn't transfer to the tip like it does to the Sharpie (especially the fine-tip Sharpies). Probably only pen lovers will appreciate this pen rant.
I also got some children's books in the mail the other day that I had ordered from Amazon. I sent copies to several people for Christmas. I love the artwork in both. One is Moon Rabbit by Natalie Russell and the other is Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet, who also wrote River of Words, a story about William Carlos Williams. Her artwork is beautiful and inspiring.
