I took out my sketchbook to draw some thumbnail sketches using the prompt "spring," and I came up with these images (which I water colored). One of the exercises in the Art of Wild Abandonment class I'm taking is to make art journal pages using your sketches. So, I took my chick idea and made this page:
It's water colors on a gessoed page with ink highlights. The journaling reads "My two little chicks have grown up so fast . . . " I'm really enjoying this process.
The chicks remind me that Easter is just around the corner. I'll be traveling that week with one of my little chicks to go tour colleges! We'll be seeing Oregon State, University of Oregon and Gonzaga University. Do you have plans for Easter?
