First off, for those of you who thought I was referring to your Christmas letter...nnnnoooo, it was someone else's letter! Your letter was my favorite!!
Santa's been asking about you. Here are some gift ideas I shared with him for the artists on his list:
A box full of fresh ideas. An ego strong enough to handle criticism. Self cleaning brushes.
Frames that actually look like the picture in the catalog. Self cleaning oil paint lids.
Customers. Did I mention friends?
A place to hang artwork. Good lighting. Time to create.
An open mind. A supportive significant other(s).
Dustless pastels. Just the right color.
A receptive audience.
A willingness to mentor others.
Last but not least, friends. (You just can't have enough of them.)
What would you like for Christmas?
