A Journal of sorts

It was a great experience to do the 30 paintings in 30 days.  Leslie Saeta  promises to host another in September I will probably join in again.  Here is her link for anyone who would be interested in seeing all the beautiful art work from this Januarys  30 in 30 and previous ones she has hosted.   Or if you are an artist who would enjoy trying it.. check it out 30 in 30 days painting

But for now I have other ideas on my mind.  I have been teaching my self the fine art of cutting mat boards for my paintings. So I will be putting some on my Etsy shop and  others given as gifts.  When my Etsy shop gets updated I will be sure to post on here and my face book page.

Today I’d like to share this cool bounded leather journal I found at hobby lobby filled with 300 pound rough watercolor paper.  It is not the best quality but for 40.00 it is a great tool for just playing with color and design.    So  I just started with pencil scribbles and then filled in the lines experimenting with color.  Sometimes.. when you just don’t feel like being serious and doing art but feel like digging into the paint palette this does the trick.

Nothing fancy other than to just see how paints look mixing or glazing.   Scroll down to see the pictures of this side project.
