Thank You, Les!

Leslie gave me a belated birthday gift even though I told her no need. She got me a SketchBox art box, and I looooove it.

SketchBox is a monthly subscription box (or single if you like). There are several companies that provide these boxes and it seems like a good idea, but I've always been leery about them. You never know what you'll get, and I've seen YouTube videos where the subscriber totally got gypped (beware the language if you click on my link to the video).

This box was perfect for me . . . the theme was "Watercolor"!!!  It came with a Winsor and Newton watercolor marker in Pale Rose (I've seen good reviews), a Sennelier (French-made honey-binder) watercolor half pan in Forest Green (I already own five colors . . . no green), a Marabu Graphix Aqua Ink (Dark Violet), Princeton Neptune Script brush (I seriously was looking to buy one of these), a Pentel marker, Legion Stonehenge watercolor paper (I was too scared to use 'cause it's $$$), and my favorite, favorite Daniel Smith dot card.

I painted a scene in my sketchbook using all the supplies. The sketchbook is not really suited for watercolor, but I feel safe (no pressure) using it.

Thank you, Leslie!!
