Ready, set, go!

Here's my sketchbook and well-loved watercolors, ready to be used.  It took a week to get going, but I've done a few pages so far.  At this rate, it's going to take FOREVER to finish, but I have vacation coming up!

Me with my empty book, ready to go!

It's here! It's here!! It's here!!!

I went out to get the mail this afternoon and my sketchbook had arrived!  I came back inside and found Frederica in my seat.  She wasn't nearly as thrilled as I was to have the sketchbook.

These are the contents of the envelope: the moleskine cahier sketchbook, a sheet listing the rules & instructions and an official Brooklyn Art Library card.  Once my sketchbook is done, it will become the property of the Brooklyn Art Library... so I guess the library card gives me visitation rights to my creation.

The rules & instructions.

My official library card.  Check it out: "2011 Participating Artist" - that's me!!

My official website for the project is  I only have a little bit of information on there at the moment, but I'll be uploading photos of my artwork to the web site.

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

I've decided to participate in the Art House Co-Op's 2011 Sketchbook Project and am reviving this blog to track my progress. I ordered my sketchbook last week and it shipped yesterday, so I expect to start drawing next week.

I chose the "If you lived here..." theme, which will explore my world in a similar way that I was planning to with this blog.  We'll see how it goes!
