It has arrived

My sketchbook that is.  Once again I’ve signed up to do “The Sketchbook Project,”  there’s a link in the column on the right. 

The last time I did this I entered late and subjects were limited.  On top of that my sketchbook took forever to arrive.  It wasn’t the best experience so when I first saw that it was going to be held again I ignored it.

It kept appearing, that little logo was everywhere I went on the internet.  I took it as a sign… “Helen, you are suppose to do this and this time sign up early so you have a choice about the subject of your sketchbook.”

So I signed up before I left for Bay View.  My subject:  “Travel With Me.”  I like that much better than “In Five Minutes” which is what it was last year.  I have more choices.  Travel around my house, my yard, my city, my state, all of the above, none of the above but instead travel around inside my heart and head… so many options.  I haven’t decided which yet so no images to post so …

I’m posting a photo of something in a friend’s garden that I may travel over to for a plein air one of these days….

He built the house; there are at least three of them in the garden.  Who knows, there is so much in his garden more could be hiding in there.

Helen.. The little houses are adorable. Do birds actually live in them? Hope to see a few on the plein air link
Thanks for the heads up on the sketchbook project. I'm placing an order and may give it a try.

A sketchbook, isn't it always kind of a traveling partner? What ever we fill it with, it becomes a friend. Have fun with your sketchbook!
