Journal pages

Pages from my personal journal
I have been working on a couple of different journals lately. One that I am doing with my artist friend and fellow Artfest teacher Syd. And another one just for myself. (Well, there are actually MORE than just one other one!) I create the paintings first then go back and write in the text.
These pages are newly created, I can't wait to get out my Pitt pens and start journaling! I think RED ink would be fantastic!
p.s. A great painting tip is to draw two objects together that don't go together normally, two things that you really like.  Think fish flowers!

I really love your work. I discovered I purchased two magazine, Artful Blogging in Feb., and Somerset Studio in August because I fell in love with your art. I just realized that you were the same artist in both issues. Wish I could think like you do - so loose and creative. I, too, do children's illustrations, but, altho I love what I do, I am sooo uptight. I hope to see more of your work in the future.

I have just started a blog at Would you mind if I list your site on mine?
