What fun! I plopped it on my art table right on top of all the current projects neatly lodged under my important paper weight (created by my dear daughter *ahem* a few bunches of years ago). This book, I said to myself, will be lots of fun to peruse and I may just find some new (old) idea to try. I opened the book and started to thumb through the pages...
Oh my! What a surprise! and what a fun thing to find! This was a text book that my father used while in college and these are his handwritten notes from the class. At this point, I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh or cry (yep, I am that sentimental...). My father had a degree in Business Interior Design - check out my blog post, My Father was an artist , to see some of his artwork. Needless to say, I will be checking out this book a lot more closely now!
I will also dive into a couple of other books that I found in my stash.
Both of these books have some fun texture ideas, great illustrations, and lots of opportunities to "paint along" with the writers.
And, if that isn't enough to keep me happy, I will pop over to about.com and play with some water drops! They are a fun addition to paintings.
Looks like I have lots of fun things on my table now. How about you?
