I'm still working on a complicated painting, and so admire friends
like Georgia Fullerton who take on large projects.  So today
I will show you two of the kinds of sketches that start my day,
since I asked myself to do three drawings a day, on my three
morning journal pages.

Of course I don't get three done, or even write in my journal
every day, but I find that the rest of my day goes better
if I do.  What things do you do to begin your artistic day,
that work to make you happy?

Have a loving your life day.

Great drawings❣️. I too try doing a drawing a day and it becomes the journal even if I don’t write. It does make the day go better.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

I quickly discovered that if I draw a big drawing, there's no
room to write. Lol. The three pages of journal a day rule,
does help. Doing the drawings makes it easier to do more.
A happy practice.

Love your work.
