when i am feeling stressed or sad i can always find my solice at my drawing table. it helps me to focus and instantly take my mind off of my problems...no matter if i just start to organize my supplies or take out my watercolors to prep for a piece of art. it is my sanctuary!
happy saturday, it is a beautiful,sunny day and i for one and thankful for a day of rest after a very exhausting week. here are the news journals i have been working on for valentine's day....make it a great day for yourself and make sure you do something fun....bake some cookies, or create some art, or sing on the top of your lungs,or dance like no one is looking...it's good for your heart and soul!
i recieved a beautiful new italian sketchbook for christmas,and the pages are thick and take to watercolor nicely...now i love moleskin,and use those for everyday sketching and mixed media, i have several of them, and use them for different things.... but i knew i had to do something very special with this particular sketchbook.i finally decided to make it into an illustrated cookbook, filled with several of my favorite recipes,what better way to savor all the sentimental recipes from family and friends!....here are some of the pages i've started to fill....i am having so much fun!
