Up to Something Artsy

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged.  One I was fighting off that nasty winter cold, family was in town for the holidays, boat parades, birthdays (my daughter turned 17 and my niece 2), and lots of other activities in between.

But I’ve also got some fun artsy news.  I had a friend reach out to me and ask if I was interested in participating in a project called Sketchbook West.  Las Laguna Art Gallery in Laguna Beach hosted this fun project in 2015.  In our sketchbook we’d sketch,  paint,  and create in our smallish book.  From there we took some of the inspiration from our books and created larger pieces.  CHosea large pieces of art work will be on exhibit in February as well as the sketchbooks themselves.  So I’m still cresting little by little looking forward to seeing what pieces they will chose.

Here’s a little snippet of some places I’ve been the last few weeks including some peeks of my sketchbook.

How about you?  What are you up to?  Something artsy?  What does your new year bring?
