I've got to admit it's getting better...

Thank you for all who've inquired about my back. It's much better, thanks to the OTC drug, Backaid, placed - oh so conveniently for those suffering from back pain, on the bottom shelf at the HEB... I told you I'd post a pick of the book covered with the goldfish paper, and then forgot, so here it is...

It's a flat spine book - like a kid's book - which you can't fold completely backwards, but is still quite a nice style for a journal. Because it's not 'shouldered' the pages all open flat-flat.

Here's the page I did yesterday after I posted... More music and color!

In the first 'M' of YUMM!! There's a spot of gold. It's Maimeri Gouache, which I love. (It's also coloring the OH, YEAH and BTW.) I carry three tubes of it (the deep and light golds and the silver) in my little tool caddy with me almost all of the time. My friend, Nena, gave me the little caddy thing. Well, actually, she gave me three, and I have the others loaded up with other art tools...

I cram a LOT of stuff into the little thing...

You can see a Niji water pen, some Pigma Graphics, a passel of Zig Calligraphy markers, four Pentel ColorBrushes, three Prismacolor Premier Markers, a couple pencils, a Sheaffer calligraphy pen (with a shadow nib in it), a bone folder and a partridge in a pear tree.

I love this paper. Still have 3/4 of a sheet, so maybe I'll make a journal with better paper. I use 80# commercial printing paper (Strathmore Writing Text) for my class. It's ok if all you do is write, or want a smooth surface. And I have a friend who does a very very dry water color on it, oddly.
