You ain't gonna believe this . . . last summer one of my workshop students gave me a funky old pad of Grumbacher watercolor paper. I'm talking old, like from the mid 70's. So I decided to paint a portrait of my pard on it, and dang if it don't look sweeter than grapes on the vine! I got about 12 more sheets left, and am fixin to seek out some more of these here pads on Ebay.
