Happy Turkey Day
Enrico drove our van down to L.A. with the Uesugi's and he couldn't resist taking a photo of Ralph Eggleston's "For The Birds" critter I have hanging on my rear view mirror. I took this one a few weeks earlier in my drive down to bring our framed work to Nucleus.
Driving down to L.A. It was just last weekend, three days ago to be exact, that I was in L.A. and now it's time to drive down there again. Meeting my mother and brothers at the gallery opening along with all old an new friends at Nucleus seemed like we had Thanksgiving precursor of sorts (Enrico even had birthday cake on the roof of Nucleus). These last months of the year always seem to zip by and we're all scheduled to the hilt. All of you travelling, have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
The Classic Blue. Acid-free, alternating bright white and ivoryl pages. Mine's a almost a year old and I've got just a few sections to go. Time to get new one for Christmas! I use the 6.5"x 8.5" size.
Where did you get that magical sketchbook? Enrico found this book one day when were were shopping at the Art Store to prep for San Diego. Since seeing his watercolors on those lovely pages (Ingre paper, man) I've been a devout convert and preach at length to anyone about the virtues of this lovely sketchbook: The Fabriano Classic Artist's Journal. I love it and carry mine everywhere I go. That, along with a compact watercolor set and plastic brush that has it's own reservoir of water and I'm set to document at a moment's notice. Below are a few links I've found to point those who's interested in acquiring one. Not shilling for these places, mind you (Vickerey's seem pricier). I bought mine in the Oakland Art Store, for those of you at the studio and wondering where to go that's close.
