Letting Go

The Sketchbook Project has been a wonderful source of inspiration for me over the last couple of months. It has kept me motivated to draw and paint and think about things on a small scale rather than the large scale paintings I like to do. I hate the day when I have to send it in, so it can go On Tour and then become part of the permanent exhibition at the Brooklyn Art Library. It's hard to let go of it, I like what I have done. I know I can scan it, but it's not the same as having the real book in front of me. I want to keep it! 

Here are a few pages from my 2012 Sketchbook, let me know what you think....

City Shapes

Looking around the city yesterday for some inspiration, I found some lovely shapes and textures. QVB Sydney I'm doing so much drawing lately, trying to get The Sketchbook Project finished before the end of the month. I am always looking up when I'm in the City, but today I looked down and saw these lovely tiles. I really love drawing patterns and shapes lately, let's see what I can do with this one.

Ten on Ten - January

This month's 10 on 10 were all taken at home. I have one boy away on a trip, and the little one was at Kindy for the day. It was very quiet around here - complete bliss. We have been busy since mid December and this was my first day alone, pity I had so much cleaning to do. I wish I had done something fun...

Tiny tomato plants
I had to water the plants first thing this morning, it was a very warm day. Our Roma tomato plants have little fruits on them.
