The ruminations of an artist on art & life...art quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Sketchbook Swap...one more time


Over a year ago I joined an online group participating in a sketchbook swap--we each started a sketchbook in circulation to the other 12 members...and once a month we mailed the sketchbook we had on...(after drawing in it--say about 3 to 5 pages)...anyhow, I just got mine back--after year!! and I want to share what some of the artists created in its pages...



















This is only some of the drawings--quite diverse--huh? almost every artist also wrote me a bit about themselves ( I asked for this in the first pages I created)--so it was a real treat to get this sketchbooks back and read their remarks...and there are plenty of pages in this sketchbook left for me to continue "sketching" in it....thanks so much to everyone who participated!!!

I just peeked in from Laura Jayne's Picture, Poetry & Prose site. Glad that I did - what inspiration :)

This was a wonderful idea, a gift to and from all who contributed to it. What a treasure!
