Product placement: awesome new crayons for mama!
I wanted new colored pencils for sketching. Alas, real artist colored pencils turned out to be far too expensive when I do already have some. I mean, I have the ones that Ellis uses and so are Crayola and have also been dropped so many times that the lead is shattered in most of them. So I settled on these pretty crayons, instead.
They did jumpstart my sketching this afternoon.
The rain has been falling steadily for going on two hours. I do enjoy a good rainy afternoon from time to time, but I'm growing weary of this fickle Spring. I want an explosion of life rather than this slow leaking of green into the world. I guess I'll take what I can get: an afternoon spent in the studio, thinking about the next thing.
