The thoughts and works of a caffeine addicted artist!
Saturday, March 24, 2007
Today was hectic, full of shopping queues, bustling trolleys, passport paperwork for our upcoming trip to Paris Disney, washing machine repairmen and a migraine that struck me halfway through all of it!
Now this could have been one of those days to excuse my sketchbooks with the statement "I was just too busy" but, for me, the sketching is the fun part and an essential end to such a day, so....I MADE time!
A quick sketch in my small moleskin sketchbook, that seems to have become my daily journal due to it's compact size, of some rather long strawberries I purchased from the supermarket. The green ink is one of my new sakura micron pens. There are 6 colours in the pack and this is the first time I am using one of them. I loved writing with it and can't wait to test out the other 5 colours!
My youngest Son, Harry, will be 9 tomorrow...NINE! I can hardly believe it! He went to bed, smiling as he passed his presents, colourfully wrapped, huddled at the fireplace - So excited!
I also managed a quick postcard, in pen and wash, for my new friend Emma-Jane Rosenberg, a promise I made during the 13th Worldwide Sketchcrawl .
