in Paris

Well, huge apologies to all trying to follow my travels.  The internet at the apartment seems to go in and out, making many many things difficult, that are normally done in a flash.  Who knew just how much we depend on lightning access? And especially, uninterrupted access?
Secondly, we have been going full speed, and I have not had or made the time to do my sketching- what a shame! There is so much beauty here!

2010 0911 at Colorscape in Norwich, NY

Of course I had to try out my new journal, so I did a few sketches from a very busy, fun and wonderful day!

Here is the cover and a few pages from a hand-crafted journal I purchased at the Colorscape Art show in Norwich, NY. Each journal is unique, made of a variety of old papers, photos, etc. I decided on "I Dare You!" but it was not an easy choice, they were all so creative and lovely.

I came home to find this butterfly still drying out his wings on my tree out front.

Every cubic inch of space gets used!  This sketch doesn't show the true width, which is narrower, about 12 ft.

I picked up a hitchhiker on my way home from the store yesterday.  He hung on to the rearview mirror for dear life down the highway, little antennae blowing back like a downhill skier.  I finally stopped in the driveway to flick him away so he didn't end up in my garage.   Such a cutie!
