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.

Finishing up my sketch book...............

I can't remember what number of sketchbook this is. It was done on a regular sketch book. I wanted to do it in colour pencil but didn't like it and so I did watercolour. That doesn't go well on regular paper. That's OK. The book is just practice stuff. Some day I will go to these books for ideas for paintings. Its fun to do. It's good practice for me. A lot is not my original ideas and so the books are just for me and practice.

The pencil sketches will get painted even though its not the best method. It saves the pencil from rubbing off.

I find quotes and put them in the books. They don't necessary go with the picture but some day maybe I will have collected enough to do pictures with quotes that go with it. I can make cards or something.

I am not sure that I will continue doing the sketch books even though I enjoy it. I should really try to do some real work. I would like to do a few tests and give them away. We shall see. I have been getting the urge to do some real paintings. I guess I don't do that much anymore because I have no wall space haha and don't know what else to do with them. I may try putting some on my Bluebell Woods page or giving some away on my blog. For now, thats probably all I will do as far as posting on this book.
