|The book - I have begun to carry it everywhere|
|as you can see it is a smallish book|
I have received some inquiries about my sketchbook. . . (why are the pages different colors - what size is it) so I thought I would post a couple of pix. I made the book from left over paper from a photoshoot, some chipboard and an outdated map of Rhode Island bike paths. It has 10 signatures of three sheets (12 pages) so has a total of 120 pages of three different colors of Canson paper. I stitched it with one of Carols sewing needles and some bookbinding thread I had. I used Elmers white glue (which didn't stick too well to the map) to assemble it. My next book will have some watercolor paper maybe and be more suited for a wider view of things.

|Loof Carousel, Crescent Park, Riverside, RI|
Sunday Afternoon sketching in East Providence. The weather was warm and the sun shining and I had my sketchpad and a little time to sketch. A good day. I went down to Larissa Park and sat on a bench and sketched the carousel.

I got this one all wrong, as the building is longer than it is tall, and the cupola isn't nearly that large proportionately. There is also a tree missing from this view, and I got the light all wrong. So I guess I should have left it out of this collection, I will need to revisit this spot - I think the 5x5 paper is to blame, yeah, yeah that's it - it's the paper's fault.
Saturday afternoon I filled in the Friday page with this Providence scene.

Some of the latest pages in my sketch journal. I am trying to sketch every day and am wondering if I should post them here or stick to my photography. If you have an opinion please let me know. Click on images for larger view.
