Journal - Snow

Journal -- BRR - change in the weather -- today cold - sun shining, but cold. And when it's cold and I have a hard time getting going, I think of snow ... don's ask me why, but it's snow ... so two small sketches done on scraps of watercolor paper cut from sheets I added to my journal.

Journal - January "Smallies" January 1-7, 2019

Journal - Smallies - Week of 1/1 - 1/7/19. I'd like to thank Leslie Fehling and Fay Iseminger for inspiring me to try these 'smallies" or "littles" in a calendar format. I'm using a Kilimanjaro black travel watercolor journal - small too - 5.5" x 8.5" (I'm loving it!) .. and these smallies are each 2" x 2". The last one had to be turned in order to fit an entire week on one page.
