All those beautiful, sharp pencil leads!! 🤣 A secret of mine.... GOLF PENCILS! I was using my two favorite worn out #2 pencils, sharpened down to stubs! But I always went straight to those two pencils! They just fit my hand better! Seemed more comfortable and balanced. And I was stressing that they were about to be too short to sharpen any more! Then one day while strolling through Staples I had an ah-ha! moment! Golf pencils!!! A box of 100! 😍😍😍 Perfect for sketching out all my paintings! And how beautiful to all those leads look, pointed up so they won’t dull, standing their in antique French zinc flower pots?!?! It’s little things that catch my eye and make me happy! Sometimes the old, worn out things have as much purpose, if not more, than the sparkly new things.. and I positive there is a lesson there somewhere!
