A page from my sketchbook

I spent about an hour last night working fast in my sketchbook. A great to unwind from a busy day.

I am really feeling the need (it really is a need) to paint and collage. Ideas are floating around in my head and I love to be able to play with them in my sketchbook. It feels safe and free and I enjoy being able to share some of the pages with you.

I am going to be focusing more on painting and collage in the new year. I am going to learn more about blogging and websites and shops amongst many other things. I also want to sign up for
A Year of Color after reading about it in Artful Blogging. Not sure if it is happening for 2010. Does anyone know more? What are you going to be working on in the new year?

Just wanted to mention that on the Bella Wish blog she is giving away 3 copies of Kelly Rae's book Taking Flight. Isn't that sweet? You have until Monday to stop by and comment for a chance to win.

Stop by Regina's blog, Creative Kismet by tonight (Friday) for a chance to win a great giveaway.

Also, I read about UK handmade mag on Lupin's blog. She has an awesome tutorial on her blog and in the online mag. It is also filled with lots of other great goodies. Enjoy!

I love these glimpses into your sketchbook! It sounds like you have the beginnings of some NY resolutions...which reminds me that I have to start thinking of some of my own. :)

Hello Dana, I love these peeks in your sketchbook too! So inspiring! This time my gaze lingers over by the butterfly, drawn with dashed lines, like stitching...

Thanks for the inspirational links too! I'm especially curious of the Year of Color and UK handmade mag.

Great idea set creative intentions for 2010 too!

Oh, I forgot to mention that my copy of The Artist's Guide arrived on Friday! Thanks for the suggestion!
