There's a new book through Amazon and other book stores called "Walls Notebook." It is a book just full of pages of walls and graffiti from New York. What's great about it is you have a place to paint and doodle, write, etc., and you don't start with a blank slate. The background is already done for you. On this page, the only things I painted are the clay pots. When I saw the book, I thought it would be fun to go out and take my own pictures in the Twin Cities, but then I started to think about all the time and work it would be to create the book, so I bought it. I LOVE this book!

I recently took an on-line class with an artist, Junelle Jacobson, and the class was called Art with Wild Abandonment. It is whimsical sketching and not so serious -- don't have to make things look as they are. There were various assignments and she asked us to sketch radishes. I had fun doing this. Downloaded some images from the internet to see shapes and colors.

The second assignment was to sketch cupcakes in whatever way we would like. Here are mine! I did them with my friend Eileen, who is doing the assignments with me.

Another assignment was to do sketch some clothes lines and I did mine with memories of being in Italy!
