Over the weekend, the weather was absolute perfection here in Virginia. It seemed like a great opportunity to grab my art journal and head outdoors. I spent the evening on the deck sketching in my journal, and listening to the girls play on the playground-heaven!
I have been working in my larger mixed media art journals for the last several years. I have a smaller journal that I used to take with me on road trips or outings to the park. It is great because it easily fits in my bag, and all I have have to have is my journal and a graphite pencil. I have to admit, I was a little nervous since it had been so long since I sketched anything. I wasn’t sure my hand would cooperate with my brain. Not perfect, but neither am I, however I am pleased with the outcome.
