When I saw the Art Toolkit from Expeditionary Art, it was a matter of love at first site. Now, one is mine. All mine.
Maria Coryell-Martin is an expeditionary artist. She has developed this kit and the included pocket palette, to stand up to the needs and extremes of polar conditions.
It’s so wonderful, I knew you’d want a review. You can find it here at Doodlewash.
Maria has also given me a code for 15% off purchases at her website (good until April 30th) and a demi-palette with five extra mini-pans for a giveaway (now closed).
I wish I had one of the Art Toolkits to give you, but the demi-palette is pretty nice, too! It’s half the size of a business card and holds 12 colors. Truly, an on-the-go palette you can fit in your pocket.

Postcards are a fantastic size for quick, relaxing artwork, and friend and family are thrilled to receive them. I paint or draw something on a postcard five days a week – to slip into my husband’s lunchbag each day.
I use postcards from Hahnemühle, so if you’ve followed my work for any length of time, you’ve seen them. Two new versions have been released so now I have four kinds to choose from – Nostalgie, Burgund, Cold-Pressed and Rough.
Why do I like these postcards, what’s the difference, and which ones do I choose each day for what reason?
