Random Quote

We write to expose the unexposed. If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must. Otherwise, you're just be rearranging the furniture in rooms you've already been in. Most human beings are dedicated to keeping that one door shut. But the writer's job is to see what's behind it, too see the bleak unspeakable stuff, and to turn the unspeakable into words - not just any words, but if we can, into rhythm and blues.

Meet Mister Art


Recently, Kris (of Anywhere But Here) recommended to me that I use Arches watercolor paper. I'm new to painting, so I hadn't really heard of them before she mentioned them.

I went to Michael's, a local craft store, and they had a sale on their Arches 140# pads - buy one, get one free. I took the remaining six pads. But I couldn't find larger paper than these 9" x 12" pads, and Kris suggested that I buy from the Internet because the paper would be unfingered by shoppers. So I hopped online and found Mister Art. I ordered a few more tubes of watercolor and not only was it cheaper than the stores (even with shipping!), it was also fast.

So a few days ago I ordered 18" x 24" Arches 140# paper from Mister Art. I got my order today.

I'm very impressed by this online store. If you need to buy art supplies, they get my big thumbs up.

I did a little surfing on Mister Art and I picked three random things...Dick Blick was still cheaper by a couple of bucks. They have some cool stuff on there though! Love the kids section!
And I ordered my tube watercolors!!!!!! I can't wait to get them and I will let you know how it is going. Woo hoo! I think I am going to try acrylics next.

Did you see the BloggyFriends Weekend 2006?? You better plan on coming to FL in Feb. :)
