I have a painting started but I haven’t worked on it lately. I’m fighting a sinus infection and haven’t felt up to par this past week. It’s been cold and damp in my little basement art room…so, I’ve been relying more and more on my sketchbooks for art. I can grab a pencil, pen, or marker and work while trying to stay toasty and warm. I’m fortunate that I don’t live in a really cold part of the country. The winter seems colder to me this year, or maybe, it’s bothering me more this year.

Here are some little bits of some pages in my little sketchbook:
