Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

Waiting for my new art spot...

It looks like it may be a couple of weeks before we can move into our new place. Well drillers, trenchers, etc. are all a little behind schedule. I'm planning a spot for my schoolwork and art. Our daugher, son-in-law and granddaughter will probably be bunking with us throughout the cold winter until they can prepare their property to move their trailer there, so we are trying to make snug places for everyone to sleep and have some space to themselves if needed. It will be close quarters even in a three bedroom home, but we are happy to help them out and will enjoy their youthful presence! I've always loved the idea of communal living. (What an old hippy!)

Instead of having a bedroom to myself for my art room, for the time being I'll be using a corner of our bedroom. I have a couple of small pieces of furniture that will work well to make a place to study and to store my art supplies. I'll post pictures when it all comes together.

It looks like I'll have to unpack my sketchbooks and paints because I do want to draw something to enter in this month's Sketchbook Challenge!

Still awaiting the arrival of The Three, Pom Pom! You enjoy your vacation!

Moving on up!

Our new house just arrived! It won't be ready to move in for about a week as they need to stitch the two halves together! We will miss our log cabin, but we hope to enjoy our new house with no basement or loft stairs which make so much of our cabin inaccessible to my husband.

My art supplies are packed and ready for the move. I look forward to having a whole room just for my artwork and study area! My bookcase will hopefully fit on one wall with a couch and a desk. It will be fun to arrange things and decorate, but art will probably have to sit on the backburner for a bit.'s always changing!

Do you find this as fascinating as I do?

Why doesn't my mind work like this? I think this is such an amazing idea. This sketch came from the Sketchbook Challenge website.
