marker on Fabriano paper
8 1/4 x 12 inches

Here's what happened. I ordered 3 Fabriano lined notebooks
5.5 x 8.5 inches from the U.S. My art store here doesn't sell
them anymore, and they are the best notebooks to write on.
I looked on Amazon -- they didn't have them so I ordered
them from a store in the U.S. And they were expensive, but
I wanted them, and needed them -- so I did it.
Today a box arrived at the door. And it was heavy. Those
notebooks don't weigh a thing, so I didn't get it. Well -- it wasn't
those notebooks -- it was three 12 inch, x 8 1/4 inch Fabriano
drawing books, blank, with beautiful paper. Really?
Yes. It was the universe saying I figure -- "you get drawing
girl." Combine that with a neighbour up the street giving me
new peonies, and asking me to pick the ones I liked --
and this is the result.
I had to draw. The message was clear. I could keep
working on this -- there's no shading, but it is time for bed,
and if I do I'll show it to you.
Have a getting the message day.
I love your peony drawing❣️❣️❣️❣️This is so complicated and beautiful and to draw in a nice new sketch book 😄
Thank you so much Evelyn,
The sketchbook is amazing. Plus I tidied my studio yesterday and
found 3 of the Fabriano notebooks I wanted, which have gone out of
production now. Sadly. So I have both writing notebooks and sketchbooks to
last me for awhile.
