She's come and gone

But it was so nice to have her home even though it was a short stay. She is safe and sound back in Japan. And I can't wait to go in April to see her and go exploring with her.

In the mean time I go to work and in between phone calls, processing reports and at lunch I doodle.

Week before last I decided to use the same scarp of paper for the whole week and just add to it every day. Here are the results:



And this was last weeks doodles



On Friday last week I had already run out of room on the original paper so started another....



I can see some of these doodles showing up in some future paintings. I may have to make myself a little doodle journal to keep at my desk....

interesting. how large is the paper? regular bond, suitable for dull meetings?
when i taught at the art college (English), I had to learn that my students could not listen to a lecture without doodling. it was the way they were. I've taken that characteristic to heart. some of my best doodles were done while having mom on the phone.

Love your doodling! I think it is a real release of our imagination as it seems so relaxed and fun to do. Have a fantastic time visiting your daughter next month.

ps my horse is shedding like crazy. How about yours?

I love those doodles. I think a doodle journal is a great idea. It would be great to look through when it's filled.
