Have you ever heard of Derivan Liquid Pencil? I saw it at "'I've Been Framed" and bought some. It has the consistency of mud. Once on the surface it dries super fast. The label said I could add water, but I just went with it as is. I did add some gesso and some "regular pencil" over the top. It was interesting...painting with graphite.
In other news from the day, I went a little early to help set up Broderick Gallery's Christmas Show. Once the reception got into swing I got to visit with some collectors, artists and of course, our host, George. If you missed the reception, you can still stop by, the show will be up until January 20, 2011. (313 E B Street, Rainier, OR)
