The minnow Pond

For the Sketchbook project 2011 . . .

The "tower" of artwork on the left hand page is done by my good friend, Sharon Borsavage. Sharon recently sent me a copy of her artwork and it was just right for this page spread! Below, is something funny I have to point out because you probably wouldn't recognize it otherwise . . . .

The image of me in a blue baseball cap and our dog Asia is a photo I had printed onto a credit card when the option of using your own photo was given. I was cutting this credit card up the other day when I said, hey! I should save this for my artwork. The photo is taken in Canada, Wolfe island, the Thousand Islands, canoeing in the the minnow pond and taken by my husband Steven . . . it is funny how these things work sometimes. It was the photo I took of the water lily that got me started with this spread. 

Another wild, but satisfying (at least to me!) spread in my sketchbook for the art house co-op's Sketchbook Project
