New Year and New Projects

The Sketchbook Project - I ordered their small sketchbook and let them pick my theme, title.
"If you lived here"

I am just about ready to mail my entry into the Sketchbook Project - through the Brooklyn Art Library. These are some of my favorite pages. Check out the project at http://arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject/

If you lived here, you might be swimming upstream

If you lived here, you would be wearing large boots

If you lived here, you would be up a tree

If you lived here you would be invited to a party

The project and my work is not great art but parts of it were great fun. If I were to do it again, I would replace the pages with paper that could be glued and painted and stitched. It was a challenge in the end.

Your sketchbook pages are wonderful. I love how they are so different, which shows what a diverse and imaginative artist you are. How great to be part of this project. Congratulations.
