I purchased the Prismacolor Deluxe Collection of colored pencils for my son. The most surprising thing about these pencils were how beautiful the pencils were boxed. My son says that they are the best pencils he has ever worked with. The best thing for me was I placed my order and it was at my house in three days. MisterArt.com is the best company I have ordered from.

Styles & Periods
Synthetism

One of the forefathers of Expressionism, Paul Gauguin, advocated for a style of painting he called Synthetism. Gauguin believed in the use of emotive line and color to depict scenes that were not exactly abstract, but also not drawn directly from nature. He believed that a combination, or synthesis, of impression and the visual elements of line and color would produce a more successful painting. Patterns and large forms in expressive color typify the work of Paul Gauguin, his colleague Émile Bernard, and other pioneers of the Synthetist style. Gauguin felt that the Impressionists' preoccupation with the effects of natural light was superficial, and sought to imbue his works with his own feeling about the subject and consideration for the aesthetic properties of his composition. The short-lived style was at its height from 1888 to 1894, but was reborn in Art Nouveau, the massive style that enjoyed popularity in Europe and America.

This is the best product for cleaning your technical pens. I also use it for cleaning my Waterman Fountain pens, and it works great!

These magnets are awesome! I use them for numerous things, gluing them to flashlights so they won't rattle in a car. Glued one on a old fine paint brush to sweep off my keyboard on my computer, storing it on a file cabinet in the room. Hold a piece of metal to be welded on a vehicle. But the glue utilized must be strong, for the first stuff I used, the magnet tore loose from the flashlight. I use JB Weld-minute weld epoxy.
