Indispensable thing 2

A week or so ago, we mentioned that there are a couple of things we absolutely NEED in order to be able to move on into a new year. The first was the calendar. The second is a new sketchbook. There's nothing like a blank page to say, "Anything is possible!"

This year, it's a moleskin . . . 8-1/4" x 11-3/4" . . . the largest moleskin we've seen. Ninety-six pages of heavy-weight, acid-free paper, nice and smooth, just the way we like it. With a heavy cover, a ribbon bookmark, and an elastic strap to keep it closed. Curry's has them on sale right now, with free shipping!

This is a photo of our newest drawing-in-the-making. If you're eagle-eyed, you'll be able to see it's a Christmas Eve scene. If we finish it soon enough, we'll post it here. Mostly, it's in preparation for next year's calendar.

On Curry's website, they say, "The legendary [Moleskin] notebook used by Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Hemingway and more." And now Coco, too! :)

  1. We have absolutely no doubt the Curry's website will soon say: "Van Gogh, Picasso, Grandma Coco,Matisse, Hemingway and more." But we also have to tell you... that's the same soft bristled brush we use for our beekeeping!! Imagine that - the same fine bristles you use in your artwork, we use to encourage the bees in their artwork.
    I really hope we see your Christmas Eve sketch soon. Not sure I can wait a whole year :)
