This is how more expensive brushes arrive, I guess--very protected. The Isabey 6701 is a special brush for detailing. Can't see it very well, but there is a separate thin cluster of bristles that protrudes from the center of the brush. Supposed to be able to use the main part of the brush as like a resevoir so that you can do fine lines for a longer period of time without having to constantly be going back for more paint. I will have to try it and see how it works! The middle brush with the plastic dome is an A2 Arches kolinsky size 4 . The top item is a canvas scraper. I've seen them used on PBS painting programs so many times to scrape in grasses, twigs, and leaf veins--finally got one of my own. This was the Jerry's order.
I had been getting very little sleep (for me) for the past couple weeks and was kind of fading away. So--last night--no alarm--I slept 12 hours!! Feel better than I have for days--throat still sore, tho. Anyways--I am officially declaring that I am a night person and I am done fighting with myself about it! Trying to force myself to be otherwise was literally making me sick--hehe! I have been feeling so tired and off and unwell that I didn't even make it to meet Roger Barnett today. Dagan and Leah went. We had gotten invited to a luncheon with him (new Shaklee president) before the free talk he was giving from 2-4pm. I will hear all about it tomorrow from Dagan and Leah---if I am feeling up to going over to their place for Sacred Circle. I thought it was next Sunday, but it is this Sunday that Leah was off at Valley Video, her second job.
