It is easier to draw than a real bird because it doesn't move. If I am going to paint or draw something, I often snap a picture with my I phone. I don't think I would have noticed the moss or fungi if drawing in the moment for the journal
I love to travel, camp and hike and would like to record my observations and practice my sketching on a more regular basis. As a retired Librarian, Master Gardener, past Girl Scout and Boy Scout Leader, I love to research about the animals and plants in the places I visit. Journaling will offer me the opportunity to explore, draw, paint and research a variety of topics. I will be 70 next month and I hope to never stop being curious about the world around me.
I hope to use the boxes to guide my drawings, paintings and observations. I am ready to get started!
