This year, I am using a Handbook Watercolor Journal, 
which is different from my Stillman & Birn Journals.

But I'm still sticking with my animal theme....  
because animals cheer me up.


I hope you are well!
Tell me what creative adventures you have been up to.

My One Word

My One Word for this new year & this new journal.

Last year my word was "rest".
This year it is "self-discipline."

Latin disciplina: "instruction given, teaching, learning, knowledge".  
Greek Paideuo:  "child training, nurturing, correction."

With self-discipline in mind, I'll be unplugging from the internet for a few days.
This way I can focus on finishing The Lost Squirrel.
Only a few more images to go!

See you in a little bit.

Pages in watercolor & colored pencil.

I begin a new journal every birthday.  

This new one is a Hand Book Watercolor Journal.

One of my favorite animals are skunks.  

They're playful, affectionate, non-aggressive, stubborn, misunderstood, & curious.  

I like them,
so Jason bought me a skunk stuffed animal for my birthday. 

Her name is Rosie. 

What's your favorite animal?

Sea Otter Pages


Pages in watercolor & pencil.

Animals make me happy.

When my sister and I were little girls, we would swim together at the pool during the summertime.
I would pretend to be a mermaid.
She would pretend to be a sea otter.  

Sweet, innocent childhood memories make me happy too.  

What makes you happy?
