Peek Into My Sketchbook






These three pages are from my 2005 journal--it is larger than my current journal, so it's easier to scan. These journals include interesting quotes that I come across in my reading, as well as sketches of things that I see. Bits of "ephemera" are taped onto the pages whenever appropriate. Usually, I sketch with a black fine point marker, then later at home I use watercolor paints to add color. These pages will be sent to Artists Sketchbook magazine--they publish pages from readers who send them in.

No-Fear Guide to Creating Art Journals

Last weekend, I met Sabrina Ward Harrison -- she is a young artist who has been staying on a ranch nearby for several months and was doing a book signing and reading at a local bookstore. I bought all her books, including the newest one, "The True and The Questions." But I asked her to sign my own journal, instead.
