And my other news is NaMoPaiMo. I haven't entered yet because my horse isn't here, but as of today she's on her way! all the way from Russia. Thank you more than I can say Margarita! The intended victim is a resin called Magnolia, not to be confused with Breyer's Magnolia the little Stablemate by Moody. This stretching Ahkal Teke filly was sculpted by Margarita Malova. Yes, she will be Brasenose's daughter. I have visions of a sooty metallic buckskin. On the same day as I bought ink, I purchased many more pastels and some Pearl-Ex. All cheers for Uncle Eli's art store, which, unlike the University Book Store, carries waterproof drawing ink.
Kudos for those who hold NaMoPaiMo and who uphold its spirit. And honor to those who manage wilderness areas.
