my journal     Isn’t it pretty? It’s a lovely combination of Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper and a blue tinted pastel paper. I ordered it from http://www.brendabooks.com. Brenda was lovely to work with, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Someday I would like to bind my own journals, but until then, Brenda gets my business!

cabin sketch

My parents’ cabin, as seen from the dock. I loved how the sky and clouds reflect in the windows, and how the light was coming through the trees. This was my first sketch in my new journal. What a joy to have really good paper!

bass lake

Here’s the view from my parents’ cabin that we spent time at over Memorial Day week-end. It was so lovely to sit on the dock and sketch… not only do you really see things for the first time when you sketch, but it seems that your other senses open up as well. The feeling of the cool breeze and the call of the loons on the lake was sublime. That’s what I call peace and quiet!
