It has been a few weeks of various adventures; the latest was in Austin last week. I was totally surprised to be smitten by that city! I had heard about the Austin "weird" but I found warm, happy, welcoming vibes everywhere (is that weird?!!) Above is an example of a journal page that I had prepared while at home in my studio. I used simple watercolors to paint a few boxes on both facing pages. They seemed to be perfect for the quick pen sketches and text I wrote on-site...and I found the feather in front of the Austin Motel (and had to sketch that crazy neon sign on a different page). My final hour there was spent at the "Sweetish Bakery" (no typo just cute name) with a perfect espresso (cake sketch on bottom left). It was a really interesting few days - maybe a great destination for a future adventure journal trip!
