I'm now a witness to the POWER of journaling
I've got goosebumps. See this journal page? I created it in September 2005, and just ran across it in my sketchbook. At the time, I as cutting out images/colors I was attracted to and pasting them in my journal and drawing about them. September 2005. I had no idea at the time this magazine photo was from Venice. Take a look at my set of photos from June of this year, that led to the development of my quilt, "Basilica San Marco"---it's the SAME architecture, probably the SAME building in Venice.......
A detail from "Basilica San Marco" created within the last few months.
If that doesn't convince you of the power of keeping a sketchbook, I don't know what does!! I've been invited to join a group of fabulous artists in a sketchbook challenge. Pages will be posted starting in January--needless to say, I'll be participating fully!
