Another time travel experience, this time back to my days as a colored pencil artist and instructor. My need to identify each pencil by color name and number always got a laugh in my workshops: 901 Indigo Blue, 937 Tuscan Red, 996 Black Grape...oh, I love those colors!
It took about 3 hours today but I got all my old pencils sorted and actually felt the urge to USE them. I will keep all my brands of complete sets but would never use all of these in this lifetime. I look forward to passing them on to others to work in this wonderful medium!
