Without my own gardening space, I resorted to a small bowl of native mosses that I grabbed from Patti's place a while back. My gargoyle loves it in there.

Green weekend

I've got a watercolour landscape on the go right now which is taxing my limited patience, so I take breaks where I just play in my journals.
Thanks once again to Patti, I got a much clearer shot of this cover.  
Spring has finally arrived. I went for a nice hike with Bean this morning and I think I've got some more reference shots for later.

Far Away

 The cover of my newest sketchbook was blank for too long. Here's the back cover, no longer blank.
Mixed media with text pages, acrylics, watercolours, oil paint pen, gel pen, Pitt pens and pencil crayons.
Patti says it looks like he's spreading space cheese on a cracker... not sure I like the sound of "space cheese". o_O

Another productive Sunday afternoon

Good company, good music, and happy dogs makes for great arting.
A detail from the inside cover of the large Strathmore mixed media journal

From my large hemp journal... I think he's related to Madame Frostbeetle.

A batch of new stuff

Thanks to Patti for the use of her home-made photo booth and awesome camera.... these spiral bound books hate my scanner so much.

Pan & Syrinx in my small Strathmore Mixed Media journal... stamp pad, acrylics, watercolours, pencils, pen&ink.
Binary girl in the same journal... acrylics, paint marker, pen&ink, pencils.
Grumpy Hippy in my large hemp journal... honestly don't remember all the media I used on him, but trust me there was a lot of it.
A sketch of Janelle Monae turned into fun with gel pens and pencils in my large Strathmore mixed media journal.
Little forest dude in the small Strathmore journal... decorative paper from the Papery, pan pastel, watercolour, hand-made stamp, stamp pad, pencils.
