inside my sketchbook

Over the past year I've added more color to my sketchbook doodles.
 My sketchbook comes with me in the car if we are driving for awhile.

This is an image that was doodled in a book and then I tried it out on cloth. 
It's not finished, but it's fun taking ideas from sketchbooks and putting them onto cloth.

Since using my pillboxes as travel water color kits, it's made adding color to sketches much easier.
There is no mess and the supplies fit well into a little bag.

 I've realized my fat sketchbook is almost full of pictures, 
but only on the right side of the pages.

When the right side pages are all filled
 maybe I'll flip the book over and do the opposite pages.

 Working over on the left side is not my favorite.  
I remember as a kid I'd use my left hand to do the left side pages,
 I could try that again. . .  
We'll see, I'm in no rush.

Interesting read, and I love your photos as well as your work. I recycle a lot in both my weaving and my mixed media, so I really appreciate your reuse of the old quilt made magical.
