I've joined the challenge that Sueb set up at http://sketchbookchallenge.blogspot.com/ Jill Berry gave the first challenge of Highly Prized.
There are so many possibilities that I just went with the Environment again.I feel strongly that we should value our world. To me it means the trees and flowers-the basis for so much. The images are all from Photos I took. The tree trunks were photographed during a trip to New Orleans and are Live Oaks. I wonder if they still stand after the Hurricane.
This one was taken in Central Oregon. I extended the photo with Gel pens then turned the work and wrote all the words for things we need to take care of in the environment.
Yesterday I decided to continue on and started a page with pastels over two different textured rubbing plates. Then I used a big foam stamp for the leaf. Yes, friends I put the book on the floor instead of the table to stand on the stamp. Standing on it gives a better image.
