I have a small sketchbook that I carry around with me in my purse. It measures about 5 x 3 inches. I use it to paint in when the inspiration hits me. Good for the wait at the doctor's office, the car mechanic, or even breaks at work. I use Peerless watercolors which are strips of paper with watercolor on them, all you do is wet them, and you have instant watercolors. I also carry around a Pitt pen and some graphite. The paper in this book is a little thin, but I don't mind. I could add some collaged papers to make it thicker....hmmmm...

Your work is beautiful. I love that you work while waiting in the Dr.'s office. It gives me ideas. I could make a lot of art in the 2 hrs. I sit and wait in my Dr.'s office.

So beautiful...as always. For the Sketchbook project, whose notebook was NOT suitable for my acrylics...I gesso 'ed' the whole book before I started. Gave the paper the tooth I needed.

You are so inspiring...I have those watercolors and never think to take them with me....will have to make a little pack to grab as I run out the door. Lovely work!
