starting a new one

when i started this blog it was my intention to actually post images from my sketchbooks..
to give a glimpse into my process, etc. i was so swamped with working the day job, then katrina hit,
and rita hit, and life continued to go in other directions. and much to my dismay, i fell out of the sketchbook habit...
but am determined to get back at it.. so this morning i collaged the cover of my newest book, adn am
ready to roll. i actually like this cover design enough that i think it needs to be done in fabric...
stay tuned!

Hey Claire, a sketchbook! good for you! I'm doing a sketch/note book and have been pretty faithful with it since early June (I started with the poem that M. James gave us). I walk in the (somewhat early) AM and bring home something to sketch and sketch it immediately. It feels like just the right way to start the day. A propos, here's a quote from Scottish painter Victoria Crowe: "drawing is a way of thinking, a visual diary, a page of poetry, a question with no answers and a link with the function of consciousness -- an attempt at understanding." I liked all her definitions. June

OK, so what have you done so far. I wouldn't want to be a nag, but......

snort and snicker, June

I really like that full moon through the window. You're right the cover would make a nice quilt. Have you started it yet?

Only kidding...
