Here's my little stash of gifts, in case you were wondering what an artist might receive for Christmas. Aaron Blaise is a wildlife artist on a mission to support artists no matter where they are starting or their financial limitations. Having a book of his art in my hands is so thrilling. ... I have been drooling over Psalms and Proverbs for awhile. Bibles aren't generally illustrated anymore, except for children, but these two are chock full of thought provoking images. As a visual artist, this hits me in the feels. Then there's a decorating book (I need to dive into this) and ear buds to listen to audio books, twitter spaces and podcasts while I work.
