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.

  3. I keep a sketchbook too... lots of them... but I can't draw! Lots of words, but I'm waiting for the pictures to magically draw themselves. YOUR drawings are wonderful. Thanks for showing us!

  4. Your pages are beautiful! I'm wondering if you're familiar with Clare Walker Leslie's book Nature Journaling. It's a great one.

    Thanks for your recent comment on my blog?

  5. Thank you. I will look for it. I love to see artist's journals, almost as much I get excited about seeing their studios.

Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. 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 broode
