It’s been a while since my last post, summer got busy and focus on sharing my art was lost. Now that autumn (and even some snow!) has arrived, I’m working on getting that focus back. Art Safari is still having their Thursday sessions, this week was fungi. Mushrooms are delicious and a healthy diet addition. Also, they’re very fun to study and draw!
Here are 2 pages of small sketches in a new Stillman and Birn alpha sketchbook. I started adding a background to a couple, but stopped, as I’m not sure they look better with or without. What do you think? With or without backgrounds?

While everyone else was wishing a happy new year yesterday, I was busy minimizing, a favorite past time of mine. I emptied out a rarely used closet, only to find these:
So many art supplies!
Yes, of course I was ecstatic to find sketchbooks and watercolor pads that I had completely forgotten existed! The negative part is – just before my Morocco trip, I went looking for sketch pads to bring, and ended up ordering new ones because I couldn’t find these, tsk, tsk.
Instead of sketching these two drawerfuls, I will instead get right to finishing up my trip sketches and blog posts. AND, I guess I’ll “need” to make a “resolution” to use my sketchbooks, and not hide them away where they’ll be forgotten.
I certainly got my money’s worth ($1.99) out of this brush! It’s rusty and going bald, *sigh* I suppose it’s time to replace. (It’s not the same replacement rules for people!)
This has been the most fun tool in my case!
