Forty Days of PaintingsBefore Easter, I set myself a goal of painting a little 3X5 painting every day for forty days. I painted views out our windows, things around the house, and of course, food. I did them on pieces of Aquarius II watercolor paper because that is lighter weight than a 140 # paper, and I thought I might want to mount them in a sketchbook. So far I'm happy with them just bundled together and tied with a ribbon.

Accordion JournalBy April 1st I decided that I should be keeping a Quarantine journal. Instead of overthinking it and never getting started, I just folded a strip of watercolor paper (spliced to make it about 5" X 60") into an accordion fold. Using both sides of the paper, it gives me about a month's worth of space. Of course, now I had to start another one for May.

Google Street ViewAbout this time of year I can't wait to get out and start sketching cottages and street scenes. It has been very cold and there is no where to go. So - I've started sketching using Google Street View. These are just small, quick, scribbly, continuous-line drawings in ink. Such fun! I am stuck on the East Coast. Try Nantucket - it's great.
