I am all over the map with my art ...

Okay my special sketch book cover page is still in process:

I changed some of the color and will be adding to it this week again.  It really is a mind clearing thing to do...just keep doodling and painting and coloring and wondering freely!!!  Peaceful!  Thanks Darla for this project!
Then, in the mailbox this week....a dvd...I haven't ordered any art instruction dvd's before, always books.  I am someone who does better if shown hands-on, so I don't know why I haven't done this before.
So, Jane LaFazio's "from art journaling to art".....LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!  This is JUST what I needed to help me get back into mixing color and making puddles so I can do the bicycle painting!!!!  I have this ATC size sketchbook that I have been carrying around and not doing much with...now it is art everyday.  I shall practice a quick and easy something and (how many time can you use and in a sentence, isn't it once??)
and...try to use it as my art AND fitness motivation/journal!!!!  What a combo!!!
Here is my starter page!
I am a pear shape that needs some trimming!!! I mean slimming!!!!  Thanks to Sophia for hosting Sunday Sketches...it takes me all week to get to everyone but I try - I don't want to miss a thing!!!
cheers, dana

Your sketchbook cover is so much fun (although I was kind of expecting to see a motorcycle instead of a carriage! hee hee)

I love that pear! Pears are one of my most favorite things to draw and paint (When I was in college I became a wee bit obsessed with the connection between pears and the female form... probably because of my generous fanny! ha!)!

Hey, where's the bicycle?!? (I'm only asking because you told us to in the last post! hee hee)
