Doing a little organizing around my house and tried to get a lot of my sketchbooks and journals together. I thought this shelf would hold them for the most part but this was only about a quarter of my books!
2017 makes 10 years since I first started my “Blue Ladies” series as a set of ten watercolor paintings. Those ten grew well into the hundreds, many of them finding new homes with various art collectors.
I’ve been sitting on this Homer Simpson sketchbook for a couple years now, waiting for the perfect time and subject to use it. I decided to put it in use with this year’s Inktober challenge. As I attempted the challenge for the first time, I also began to use the sketchbook to restart a project I first worked on several years ago, the Blue Ladies. A few Composition Book Chronicles have also found a home in it as well
