More sketches and Sharpie Vs. Ink Joy

Here’s some more doodles for the book. I sat at the dinner table drawing and doodling… ways to draw the sun, expressions for the naysayers and supporters, the anchors. I love the sun with the heart shape rays. I didn’t plan on this but as I write I’m thinking, maybe I should use Ink joyContinue reading “More sketches and Sharpie Vs. Ink Joy”

Draw like a kid…

Tonight I just had to share that watching children create is such a creative booster. I saw them color, sketch and forget it they just drew. I did hear a few I messed ups but even then, they simply asked for another paper and proceeded. P.S. I opened up a limited edition etsy shop. TheContinue reading “Draw like a kid…”

Fun + Art History + Creativity

These are some of my supplies. The old Crayola educational set is now filled with Mission, Grumbacher and Cotman. I’m in the process of organizing a new paint palette.

Ideas don’t always have to make sense. The best ones don’t. I’m going to sit down when the house is calm, without interruption andContinue reading “More doodles and for reals plan”

This weekend I had to get rid of an old palette. Crayola means a lot to me. I’m working on a new blogging class and the creative exploration class. I’m going to sketch and doodle the book this week. My birthday is coming up and I’d like to finish and scan the entire book. FirstContinue reading “Making changes”

Road Trip Book

I went to McDonald’s yesterday and this book caught my eye. Of course I had to bring it home. I’m thinking about my road trip book. Seems like the idea and excitement are slipping away. Makes me think of Elizabeth Gilbert’s, Big Magic. I sat down and read all the notes I had thus far.Continue reading “Road Trip Book”
