Well I have finally joined with 4 others to paint in a Japanese fold-out Molskine.
It is surprising; something so small can cause such stress. I am also surprised that this is something that I initiated. I had put it off because I thought it would be too hard, or stressful, or I’m not good enough or who would want to be in my book and all that other stuff that runs through an artist’s mind when they first look at a clean white piece of paper or canvas and realized they aren’t an artist after all.
Then I just thought I can make myself scrub a toilet or clean up after a baby or a husband for that matter. I should be able to make myself do something I like.
I started by asking Gemma @ http://www.sandyfloorboards.blogspot.com/ and Anna @ http://www.annaquarelles.blogspot.com/ If they would be interested. They both stepped up as the friends that they are and said anytime anywhere. I asked them both to invite one person. Gemma brought Kim @ http://yarrow-retreat.blogspot.com/ and Anna asked Dolors @ http://www.dolorsbarberan.es/ . Gemma helped me with the name because she is a famous poet and writer.
Now with everyone on board the new blog site is up and running. http://www.theadventuresofameanderingmoleskin.blogspot.com/
We begin in October by finding a theme for our book, paint our first 6 pages and then send our treasures on to the next person.
You can all follow along if you would like. Just follow the blog site and enjoy. I will.
