Joy Expressed Before Coffee


I am filled with joy this morning 🙂

  • The sun is shining.
  • The doggie has been walked and now wants a nap.
  • Today is going to be warm.
  • I have music playing.
  • The coffee is making.

I had ZERO coffee before using my 5 Pentel WOW! Gel Ink pens to doodle my spring joy. I love Gel ink pens .. WHEN they work right .. they are a pain when they do not work tho 🙁

I am using Canson Mix Media 98 lb paper – the sheet was 9×12 inches but I halved it last nite.

I need to buy a scanner for the artwork thus I need to start using smaller papers again – – – just like the old days – – – I am not good at taking awesome product pictures of my artwork and I need digital for pro results of the old-fashioned non-digital yet fun for me art materials. I also need to buy a bigger assortment of Gel Pens too 🙂 for the days that I want to use them instead of my “magic pencils“.

And my Corel *** Painter*** software is perfect for my digital painting .. plus .. I also use it for my photographs too.

I had to choose where to put my software upgrade dollars so they went to Painter .. not to PhotoShop 🙂

And I suspect that the Painter 2019 upgrade version is just around the corner too!
