A Sketchbook of Mine



Front Cover

A few pages out of one of my sketchbooks.. .The cover of the book is one of those canvas things, so of course can't let that stay blank..
Done at different times and I think this was watercolor pencils.
Paper was terrible and you can see the buckling on some , but they were just pretty quick sketches or paintings so no matter.
Pretty sure I did this one when I was in the hospital last year.
What the heck was *I* so happy about !!!M
Hey, thanks for looking.. Working on a special pencil drawing right now so thought I'd post these..

  10. Such gorgeous delicate work. Thanks for sharing. I am feeling much better. All the tests came back normal so have no idea what's next. Pain is gone for now.Thanks for your comment. I had some paper do that nasty buckling. I used a heat gun and lightly held it on the back side and it straightened out. You might try that.
