It's been awhile since I posted anything from my sketch book. I really have not done anything worth posting. I gave it a break for a time but found myself back at it. After a break I seemed to have lost the knack. I really have not done anything any good. Still, I must post the bad with the good, so here are a few recent ones.
Some things just do not photo well but thats OK. My sketch book is something I work on continually until its full. I go back and add to each page as I am inspired. I copy things from books and I like to put inspirational verses and sayings on each page too.
The purpose has changed through each book. I began by trying to loosten up my paintings. That is still a goal. I am not trying for realism here, even though that is my preference.
I am very inspired by other blogs who do painting or drawing. Some are just so good, they can not help but inspire.
I don't know where this journey will lead me but I am sure enjoying it. What will I do with all the sketch books?
simplicity.......I would like to illustrate childrens books. I would actually enjoy writing one with simple pictures.
Well that's enough for now.............I finally got my photobucket sorted out again. So now I have to get down to getting my other blogs done.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
