January is slipping away! I’m of two minds about that – I’d like to slow time a bit, but I’m eager for Spring, and by the end of January I’ll have 31 days of journal sketches! Here’s a few of the better ones. I particularly like the Patterson Depot that my grandmother ran for 40 years, and the birdnest that the house finches built over our porchlight last spring! I found as the month went on, I became more apt to add color to my sketches. Maybe because I’ve also been working this month on five beach themed watercolors for our local art association. I’m pleased with those pieces and perhaps will post them after I’ve shared them with the group in early February. I’m looking forward to later in February team teaching a Nature Journaling class at Covenant Woods with a fellow CoWo family member. More on that later. For those of you in the northern hemisphere, hope your winter hasn’t been too harsh so far. Stay warm!
