My book is done and ready to ship back for the Sketchbook Project. I have some reluctance in letting it go, but that was part of the deal from the start. My sketchbooks are not usually for the public eye, but are rather personal idea playgrounds. This is a good lesson in letting go and sharing. The book will be a part of the national tour, then housed at the Brooklyn Art Library for people to check out and peruse. I find that a terrific concept. We had the option to be given a theme, or to choose our own from a list. I opted for "In 5 Minutes". Shown here are my painted & printed cover, along with a selection of some favorite pages. There are more on my Flickr page.
I have to agree with Joanell Connolly, that I would change the paper if I were to do it again, as it did not hold up well to watercolor or mediums. It was a push to finish up. Check out Joanell's fun pages!

With that project done (whew!), I can begin to clean up, clean out and prepare for this new year.
