My 4x4 project progresses. Some days I can't elp myself and must make more than one. I've added a warm white Stonehenge paper to my stack of cut down squares. I'm making some micro pen drawings with some new pens I was given for my birthday.

I've also been scanning, signing, and numbering the drawings. Each will be put it's own display bag for the show and sale in 2020.

A selection of drawings in my 365.2019 project.

It's great to be going through my drawers and flat files to find scraps of unused paper to make these drawings. There are plenty more coming. Enjoy this small grouping. Each drawing is a wnderful discovery.

Now it's time to cut down some more 4 x 4 inch squares.

I've begun working on a plan for my 365/2019

I'll begin making drawings in February. This is my sketchbook where I started setting the perameters.

I expect to create my grids this weekend so I can test some of te systems I'll ned to keep the drawings centered and keep to the process.

Looking forward to sharing more as soon as I cam.

I spent some time getting back to drawing my microweave pieces. These are each about 3 x 3 or 4 x 4 inches square. I'll be looking through them to see which really have a unique feel. Loving my Stablio pens, planning on extending the colors in my pencil case.

I currently have a dozen.

They each take patience and being in a very restful state.

A trip to Artist and Craftsman. Picking out paper for new drawings. Also picked up two new cradleboard panels for my ongoing long and short project.

I haven't been in my studio in two weeks. Busy with the jobs. I have been drawing the whole time and now I'm working on a new project. The river project. A can't find the sketchbooks I want for my new project. Leaves one choice. Make my own. Well. maybe with the help of my bud Elena Bouvier. She is my trusted source for all things book. I'm trying to decide what format I would like the drawings to take. Setting up some ground rules for how I will create the drawings and then how the project will be as a whole.

The book for my #drawingaday project has a design and I've been making pages. I'm almost current with the drawings I have made. The cover is next on my list. These will be handmade I think since production services like Blurb are too expensive for the quality.

So these maybe either limited edition or made to order or both.

I spent a long day in the studio Sunday.

I walked over from home; took a different route and enjoyed the cool weather. By the time I got up to my studio I was feeling a bit more tired than invigorated by the walk. I decided I didn't have the energy to make drawings on the wall.

I poured a tall glass of water and put on a half pot of coffee as usual.
