First Pen Show

W16 7 18 PENTALIC PEN SHOW 03W16 7 18 PENTALIC PEN SHOW 04No 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.
