Stop, start...

I really admire people who are able to keep amazing workbooks, full of drawings, collages, ideas etc. I am a bit spasmodic with such activities, having bursts of enthusiasm, then it all fades and I don't do anything for awhile. Recently I did managed to complete such a workbook, and even started on another one. My workbooks take on different forms each time, simply to make it interesting.

My current workbook is a stapled book which has been lying around for some time. I am painting on only the right side pages, and placing a quote on the left side. I am doing the quotes on labels as the painting on the other side of the paper usually leaks through to this side.

Here are three completed pages:

Quote: Time flies, remember you must live.

Quote: The mountains can't grow any bigger, but we can... Jim Dorman.

Quote: The best way to get a good idea is to get lots of ideas.

And here is a selection of some of my completed workbooks:


  1. WOW!! They look wonderful! Inspirational. Hope you are enjoying the Chathams...

  2. Gorgeous! Can't wait to see the fiber work that develops from these though they stand on their own.

  3. Those are wonderful. I think you should publish them in a book. They would teach a lot.

  4. Love what you do!! The quotes are great too......and what a great idea to put them on labels!

    Hope you are having a great time away and taking loads of pictures to share!
