Artists of course! I am just back from CREATE, Seattle and just love all the beautiful friendships that come with teaching. We share and give each other so much. We share ideas, new art supplies, creative thoughts and encouragement. And gifts!
Marlene gave me stencils - she says she bought too many, lol. Diana made me a beautiful envelope to keep all the cool Polaroid mini photos that Michelle shared with me. Michelle also bought me a pencil sharpener because I needed one. Susan gave me a magic wand (that can also be used as a pen).
Today in the mail, I receive two beautiful ceramic brush holders from the National Gallery of Art sent to me by Pat. Here is what she says about them:
"ceramic brush holders - like a mug w no handle - I had one in class. I think of you every time I look at it and would love for you to have one. I use it for my clear water and pipette when I paint - lets me know it is NOT the one with my coffee in it and the water is always clean to add to a half-pan without getting too much water over into the next pan that I don’t want wet. You of course, may actually drink out of it or use it for brushes. I find it interesting that they list it as a brush holder.
THANK YOU EVERYONE!
