Sketchbook Project Progress

I finally have begun to fill the inside pages of my little sketchbook.  Here is a glimpse at one of the pages.  Portraits are calling me lately, and there's going to be a bunch.  I know it sounds crazy to do the cover first, but it just sort of happened that way.  Since time is limited, I'm just going to go with the flow of the creative process and see where it leads.  It's always more fun that way!

Cactus Monday: Nest

A teeny little nest snuggled between two pricklies.  This photo was taken with my camera phone, since I didn't bring my good one to a spur of the moment trip to the Desert Botanical Garden.  Happy Cactus Monday! 

New Facebook Fan Page!

It's about time, right?  Click on the image to go to my page and find out everything I am up to that may not get posted here.  I hope you "Like" me!

Sketchbook Project: The Cover

Well I finally started it after a month or so of trying to figure out my take on the theme I picked. . . "Adhere to Me".  I have until January 15th to have it completed and postmarked by that date.  I'm going to be sketching like crazy!

Stay tuned to see how it unfolds. . . I'd like to know that myself!

Cactus Monday: Moleskine time at the Desert Botanical Garden

Lunch with an artist friend always seems to end up with a drawing session or some sort of creative process at the end of the day.  I love that!  Annie over at Chaos in color and I, went out for some good local Mexican food and decided to jet off to the garden and we stayed until twilight.  Twilight in the desert is my absolute favorite time of day to capture in art form, everything is so beautifully illuminated in amethyst hues, bouncing off of the green cacti.  I love that place, can't get enough of it.  Above is the sketch I did on location.  Another good reason to always have my moleskine and watercolors on hand and ready to go in my purse!
