Mini Watercolor Paint Palette

I’ve never been one to paint outdoors or in public, though I admire the paintings that are done that way.

But I’ve been taking classes in journaling, and following blog posts about sketching in public, and I’m gathering up the nerve to do it.

My reading has led to a variety of websites that talk about the supplies that artists take when working on location. Maybe having the right supplies will give me some incentive to try painting in public.

Ooo, Look What I Bought!

I’ll admit – it was love at first sight. I came ’round the corner, and, ah…there it was.

At the Avant Garde Art & Craft show last Saturday, I wandered away from my table to see the other vendors. I went out one door and when I came back in the other, there was Andrea Rogers at her Blue Highways table loaded with gorgeous blank books. I mean GORGEOUS!
