I have an insatiable love (addiction) for art supplies. They are like my crack. And Suder's is my crack house. The rows and cubbyholes and stacks of neatly-organized rainbows of colored pencils, oil pastel, acrylics, papers.....must....color....something...
And how amazing is it that's it's been in Cincinnati since Cincinnati looked like this! It's seen three generations of artists through its doors! Seriously, makes me want to never step foot in a giant chain art/craft store again.
I LOVE taking Hudson there. He's becoming just as in love with art supplies as I am. And of course we had to stop by yesterday to stock up for our vacation.
It's so beautiful and grungy inside....old, uneven floors...parts where the ceiling is so low you have to duck...
And LOOK! I made you guys a coloring page to keep you occupied while I'm away! Click on the image below to get the high resolution version, then right click or drag to your desktop. What are you waiting for! Go get your crayons!
Arian : )
Thanks for the treat! I'm obsessed with office supplies. I'd never heard of Suder's. Very cool!
Oh this is so beautiful. I love, love, love your art work.
I have just made a card for my husband out of your colouring picture.
Thanks so much for the image.
OOOh think I may have to buy some watercolour paper and paint it too
Hi Arian - I am one of Kim Jackson's housemates and she shared your blog with me several months ago - it is now one of my favorites... who needs the Pioneer Woman - I've got Arian to inspire me .
After you posted the coloring page, I shared it with another friend who I had met through Kim - Angie - a sweet young mother of four adorable, creative children.
Her oldest girl, Isabella loved your art style!
See Angie's blog for her rendition of one of your pictures that she especially liked....
Thanks Adrian for your inspiration....
Hi Arian - I am a friend of Kim Jackson! She shared your blog with me several months ago and it has quickly become one of my favorites!
After you posted your coloring page, I sent the link to a friend who is a young mother with four very creative children.
Her oldest, Isabella (age 9), loved your style! She decided to do her rendition of your print that was her favorite.
Check out Angie's blog to see her masterpiece...
Thanks for your inspiration....
So bummed there isn't a Suder's by me. Love your art!
I am going to have to stop by this art store on my next trip up there. :) I love your art work!
