What's On Your Desk ?



I have always wanted to be the type of artist whose brushes and pencils are housed in vintage pottery...maybe even in the McCoy vases that I collect. But truth be told, my studio has not yet been elevated to that level. My McCoy vases are not quite that utilitarian. Instead I use old mugs for my essentials. Mugs that have lost their place of honor in the cupboard, but still bring back memories of where it all began. I like to imagine that one day my studio will be glorious enough to employ a more chic ceramic for my brushes. But for now...hey, I've got running water and an art sink, so how can I complain?

Hey, Nancy, these are just fine. Gosh my brushes are in old plastic containers. I justify that by saying I am
'recycling' and yet I too would wish for an eclectic array of containers. Someday....

Nothing wrong with an old mug. Heck, I keep one handy right between my shoulders. :)
