"Cup o' Colored Pencils" ~ December 2011
colored pencils on hot-pressed watercolor paper

No matter how hard I try to keep my drawing desk clear of clutter, it's obvious I need to do some clearing up .. again. :(

Q: How can you find anything?  A: Well, I know where to reach...

Q: Do you really need more colored pencils?  A: Always!

So, in another "brave attempt" to sort out my messy desk before the next drawing happens, I'm cleaning it up again this weekend (making this, oh, about the umpteenth time this year)! Notice that I'm not mentioning clearing up the rest of my studio. ;o)



tot ziens,
Judy

noooooo if you 'tidy' them up you will take forever to find the right pencil!!! My desk must look like that too, or else I cannot find a thing! ;-)

lol! Don't worry Charne... it ain't gonna happen in this lifetime! I just purchased 24 new Pigma Micron pens... just shuffling things around in the studio is what I consider *cleaning up*. :p
