January Creek

purchase here
I keep multiple sketch bags in various sizes in several locations, as to always have a bag at the ready.  Today, I picked up a small leather bag that I use when traveling to amusement parks or the zoo, anywhere I might need to be hands free - but still have supplies for small paintings with me.  While digging through the "pen pocket", I found my favorite fountain pen on it's side at the bottom!  I keep all my fountain pens stored nib up, ready to use.  I did have to swish this one through the water a couple times before the ink would flow correctly, but oh how I've missed the smooth nib action!  Pretty sure I have a different ink than my norm, and the paper was different, too, but it was a pleasure using this pen again!  Painting number 2574 in 2574 days.
