03-11-2012 I've been investing a lot more of time into reading lately. I love picking up a book and reading three to four pages then absorbing it. This way I can read many different books at the same time, it's the best way to fit reading into my schedule.
Of course I'm reading a novel there is always one hanging around this one is a James Patterson Alex Cross book. I'm also reading "Artist's Journal Workshop" as I am taking Catherine Johnson's Strathmore Watercolor Workshop I thought it would be fun to get familiar with her work. The Blissfully Journaling group was discussing reading a book called, "Life is a Verb" so I picked that up too. I'm very excited about started that book soon, the introduction was intriguing.
I finally finished reading Danny Gregory's, "Everday Matters" I've been a member of the Yahoo Group inspired by this book for quite a while so it only seemed befitting to read the book. It was very good and I decided to read another of his books "The Creative License" This sketch below was suggested in the book as one of a series of four non-pencil drawings.
Simply put, #1 Draw a Chair. This just isn't any chair, I adore this glider/rocker not only for its comfort but also the memory of holding my daughter in the middle of the night rocking and smelling her sweet baby aroma. A mix between sugar cookies and something heavenly unique only unto babies. I hope the other 'pen only' sketches will be as successful as this.
