Rural Minnesota in my Illustrated Journal...

I'm taking a writing class called "Writing Ourselves Alive;" and one of the things we are to do is write short pieces that precisely capture a fully-engaged moment in our life.  These are called "small stones."  I combined my first small stone with this page in my illustrated journal...




I am discovering that my favorite way of doing watercolors is using my neocolor II crayons and Pitt Pens in S and F.  That is what I used here.

Hope your week is going great!
