Art supplies

Fabriano Watercolor paper

Fabriano 90 lb Watercolor paper

Over the past week I’ve been cleaning and organizing art supplies – old printing ink, rollers, paper, pastels, paint, brushes, pencils, pens, etc.

A lot of it seems impersonal (e.g. a burnt sienna Prismacolor pencil) but some supplies bring back a flood of memories, specific times and places (both physical and mental).

Last night I bought some 90 lb Fabriano and 140 lb Strathmore watercolor paper for a small series of mixed media studies and experiments. I really enjoy shopping for art supplies, even if it’s just for paper.
