A New Moleskine Notebook

With my discount coupon in hand, I headed out to the local art supplier in my neighborhood for a little Artist’s Date with myself.

I had a mission: buy watercolor paint colors I ran out of, and get a Moleskine watercolor notebook for doodling and sketching.

Mission accomplished! The notebook is one of the smaller sizes. I really didn’t want to commit to something too large so I wouldn’t be discouraged. But you never know, I could be annoyed by using a small book too. Then again, the price of the larger was much higher  so I sprang for this one.

The instructor at the NYC workshop I participated in used a Moleskine for her sketching. I thought it might be good to keep me from arguing with Mr. Resistance. Nothing expected by a doodle or a quick sketch, no commitment to a huge new painting, to experiment with brush and paint.

Process, not product.

Just staying in the game, so to speak.

As a fine artist, I paint, knit, and make jewelry, to figure it all out.
