Pages from my Artist Journal

My sketchbook is one of my favorite material possessions. I wish that I was better with words, because I love how some artists combine beautifully clever writting with their drawings.


  1. I love that you keep a sketchbook. I too love to let my creative side out...I draw, paint and write. However, I have the hardest time making myself take time for it. It seems like there are always chores, errands, etc. to keep me from it. Maybe just starting a sketchbook would keep me going.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…

Snow Days are for Experimenting with Paints

We had a snow day this week. I spent it trying out new paints and techniques, starting with gouache added to new watercolor paintings and then playing with the pallet knife for some texture.
