journal pages from vacation

journal page, self-portrait

My husband and I took a short vacation. We decided to not take the bicycles and rely either on our own two feet or public transportation. On the train heading to Seattle, I sketched myself in the window's reflection.

I like butter, journal page

During one of our long walks on Bainbridge Island, two teenagers eating pizza passed by us. One teen was talking loudly so we could hear his conversation as they approached and until they passed us. I didn't think my husband was also listening, but both of us started chuckling at the same time! He had heard the guy's "I like butter!" soliloquy too.

It was a good trip. Being off the internet and computer for three full days was just what I needed. I came back feeling refreshed. I've put up photos from the trip on instagram and my photo blog.

wishing everyone a good week and joining sunday sketches.

art journal page, taking care of the sense

art journal, February 13, 2017

Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of themselves.
Lewis Carroll

I take a daily walk to the local grocery store. It's about a half mile each way. Depending on the weather and time of day, the sights and sounds differ. There is always something to appreciate, rain or shine.

an endless becoming

I finished this drawing and doodles a few days ago. I wanted to add a quote to the blue sky area and spent the morning looking for a quote to match the feeling of this journal page.

Nothing stable.
Nothing absolute.
All is fluid and changeable.
There is an endless becoming.

Benjamin Cordozon

I was needing this reminder.
