Above: A gouache sketch from my 11 x 14 inch Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Hardcover journal. Sorry for the less than sharp image. It's incredibly difficult to scan this journal because it's so large and I have to piece the scans together. I wanted to show you this sketch because it was loose and fun, but I didn't have time to scan and stitch it up. It started as a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch and then I added mixes of English Red, Dark Blue Indigo, and Titanium White—and yes I went a bit crazy with my highlights; I was coughing a lot, what can I say. The pink in the background is Montana Acrylic Marker. Click on the image to view an enlargement, even it a somewhat fuzzy one.
So many people have been asking me how to subscribe to my blog and telling me that they can't use the RSS links provided at the bottom of the left-hand column that I investigated a little bit last night and seem to have found a way to create a subscription "widget" through FeedBurner.
I really have no idea if this will work. I'm clueless about this stuff and couldn't find a straightforward explanation of it all.
You'll find the subscription widget in the left-hand column just below "my blog's search engine" and the "tweet" and "follow me on twitter" links; just above the "Categories list."
If you are one of those readers who has asked about this possibility in the past, please take a moment to click on subscribe and tell me if over the next two weeks if it works for you. I would appreciate it.
In the meantime I'll go back to writing posts, which is something I know how to do…Tomorrow there will be another installment on the Hand•Book Journal Review.
