No longer a Pen Show Virgin. I’ve been to our little Portland Pen Show.
It was fun being in that geeky collecting environment. Dealers were friendlier than I thought they would be, and it was so cool to be able to hold pens I want. Mitchell bought me this lovely Jinhao that was completely reworked by a Canadian dealer so as to
make it a wonderful writing instrument. Cobalt violet, amazingly beautiful.
Tried it out last night. He inked it with a Diamine purple ink of some sort, and so,
grapes came to mind. Watercolor painted in the “dark” late at night, a bit overworked.
Pentalic Aqua Journal, Platinum Carbon pen, Lamy Al-Star,
Platinum Preppie Pen, Noodler’s, De Atramentis Document, and Super5,
and Greenleaf & Blueberry, Sennelier, Holbein, QoR and Daniel Smith watercolors.

What a cool looking pen. Darn it I missed the Pen Show!
I can hear your excitement coming through the post. You will be able to create many lovely images!
I love it — I just through some more of that lovely Diamine Blue ink in — I am playing a bit with non-waterproof inks now…
