I have a variety of markers, crayons, pens and pencils I utilize to create my art. In this stack you can also see the different shades, styles, widths, and colors within my green box. Over the years I have realized that part of my enjoyment in creating art is choosing which tool – color, size, texture, style – I want to feature. Sometimes the fun of creating is putting the different tools together on paper because each time I do it I learn soemthign new. 

Do you have more of one tool than another? Are there pens you prefer to use or pens you avoid? Next time you pick up a pen, savor it as a tool and think about it as a portal to your creativity…and use that pen until it runs dry!
