The Wandering Cloud Finds a Home

The cloud just didn't seem to fit the other page, but it has found a permanent spot overtop of those strange treetop monkeys. Good thing I'd only scotch-taped it in the first spot.

I had an invasion of family over the weekend, including my "little" brother staying with us for a couple of days. Luckily he's as artsy as us and while I didn't get any alone/down time, I did do some arting, as evidenced here.

What you can't see is that the monkey page is inside of my FINALLY stitched together new book. Also a couple of sketches from my too-big-to-fit-in-the-scanner sketchbook which will hopefully be worked up into something more than doodles, AND Opus had some of their 8.5x11 hardcover watercolour books on sale for $4.50, so I picked up one for myself and had to christen it.

Not the ideal weekend I'd planned, but it could have been worse.

From Patti's Place and in the Geography Book

None of these are finished, per se, but I thought I'd share this stage, at least.
The one with the copper cloud I started over at Pattio's, and the other two are a spread from the geography book.

It's not messy, it's creative!

I did this to my desk last night and suddenly feel quite a bit better. Funny how that works!
I really love working in that old geography textbook.
