Lately I have been enthralled with sketching natural elements and watercoloring my sketches~
The cover of my nature sketchbook features a rusty slide mount, cut out words, and flower sketches on watercolored canvas. The thrifted book is the perfect home for all my splattered sketches and other elements.
One of my favorite things is to cut out random words from a discarded large print book. I keep a stash of those words in a box and when I'm ready to create... I spill out words and see what speaks to me... what connections I can make... almost as much fun as the sketching and coloring...
Another way I find inspiration is from wonderful, meaningful quotes. I adore matching those favorite quotes with my art elements. Thumbnails of my photographs are a natural compliment to my drawings.
The photographs are of flowers and plants from my very own garden.
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."
"Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature."
"Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart."
"Seek not outside yourself~heaven is within."
My fern sketch from last time is now colored and splattered... with a message for you~ CELEBRATE-
