☆ Playing + Finding Inspiration Again

Snippets from my Studionewsletter sign up front page

When I first started out on this crazy artistic journey, I used my sketchbook every single day.

I would pull it out and sketch some, or scribble ideas down or capture glimpses of inspiration.

Over the last year or so I have been scribbling down less, sketching even less

Reflecting over 2015 I realized how much I missed playing in my sketchbook + missed capturing moments; I missed the feel of heavy paper beneath my pencil, sketching while watching a great movie or binging on Netflix.

Making time to work through the pile of inspiration in my studio, which I would love to use in future paintings. Sticking into my book random quotes that speak to me and may one day be a fanciful words poster painting. Glueing all those scraps of paper that have been pulled from magazines, junk mail (or the vodka packaging) that spark my imagination.

A month into 2016 and although I haven’t had much time to play – just a few pages here and there but I love the feel and look of my new sketchbook + I have started carrying a small one around in my purse again (every six weeks my chiropractor begs me to lighten my bag!).

I am totally loving the feel of the thick paper under my pencil again!
