Inside my sketchbook … issue 11 ...

It's safe to say that drawing … painting … art in general is a bit of a passion of mine.

In fact it's safe to say it's been a lifelong passion of mine.

Now this isn't a grandiose statement … I've actually got the photographic proof to back it up!

Here I am at two years of age.



And again.


And again … there's a definite pattern emerging here.


Of course I did have some other interests at two … like hijacking other people's birthday candles.


So it's clear to see that even as a small child nothing made me more happy than a pencil and a clean piece of paper … and nothing's changed.

Here's the latest additions to my sketchbook … all done at the cost of my housework of course!

I've been tinkering with my watercolours.





I've dallied with my pastels.




And I threw in an acrylic on canvas … just for the fun of it!!


Is it any wonder that the floors are filthy and I can never find the time to update this blog??

  2. You are very talented and advanced in all these media, Jo! And the best part for me, I can feel that you are inspired, I feel the heart in your creations. Your images make me smile!

    Your baby photos are adorable, and you remind me my daughter - she started drawing since about 2. For a few years, she carried notebooks and pencils everywhere we went!

    Never mind the floors - there's art that needs doing.

  4. When you can spend time dallying with a sketch book and paint, pencils, pastels etc....why do housework?

    Great photos of you when you were younger, what fun to think you have been an artist since you were little! ;-)

    1. It somehow confirms that I'm meant to do it … which excuses the lack of housework a little ;0)

    1. I have a habit of doing a quick doodle in the steam on the shower screen every time I'm in there … so at least one a day, every day :0)
