Getting back to art - with clean sleeves

I highly recommend the little book "Art and Fear". I bought it several years
ago in the bookshop of the Oklahoma Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain. It's
like the authors had followed me around since high school. I have seldom
found a book with which I could identify as readily as this.
Exhibiting-artists, artist-teachers, teacher-artists, whatever hyphenate
applies, should read it.

Also, for those of you who have problems keeping your sleeves dry or clean,
try Sleeve covers. Countless clerks and secretaries used them in the days of
pen & ink and carbon, and Civil War era ladies used a similar item to great
effect as "undersleeves". It's just a tube of fairly stiff (and/or
waterproof) fabric with elastic in one end. They just go about to your
elbows. Pull them on over your sleeves. You can paint or otherwise decorate
them however you like.


PS - I still think some people haven't figured out how to reply to
individuals with the new system. We're getting lots more seemingly private
one-line posts than before.
