I have been thoroughly enjoying the process of creating my sketchbook. In fact, I've decided to make another one when this on is completed. I've never been a diary keeper but this project has really shown me a way of allowing yourself to just be creative for no purpose. No one has to see my next sketchbook and I can try stuff that is just in my mind.
I've also learned how much I'm in love with sketching. I always thought painting would be my one love but I find that putting pencil to paper has a simplicity I can find no where else. That wonderful feeling of simplicity is what inspired this mosaic. Don't you just love that little bird??
I'm a watercolor and mixed-media artist who blogs about her adventure in paint. Come visit me at JustAddWaterSilly.com. I also am a contributing editor for Featuring magazine, an international english language art magazine published quarterly. Previously I owned my own wedding cake business (for eight years) making designer wedding cakes decorated in handmade cold porcelain flowers. It was fun creating three dimensional real looking flowers as decorations but I really wanted to be a painter so when I moved I shut down the business. Now I paint, blog, write for Featuring and review good books for fun. It's a good life.
