Last week, the end of this challenge.
Oddly, I think I am the only one who did it!
No matter; I am developing a drawing habit.
Next I take the 75-day challenge from Brenda Swenson.
I know I will break her rules, because I LOVE sepia ink.
Oh well, my challenge, my life, my love of brown ink!
Another week of Sketchbook Skool.
So far, I think Brenda is the best teacher.
She was inspiring, articulate, but most of all she came back through
and looked at student work online several times and engaged.
This is important, especially to a newer artist who feels a bit lost or
like they are not very good — she commented and encouraged and corrected.

Katie, I could lose myself in any one of your sketchbooks. Simply mesmerizing, including your written words.
You are always so supportive! Glad to inspire!
I know – I sound like a broken record or fear you think fake enthusiasm, but everything you choose – colors, illustrations, messages, objects, la luna, – they all speak to my soul. I think the art blogs I’ve found are the treasure if a lifetime and yours is truly special!
Sammy, truly, from the bottom of my heart, I never think you fake enthusiasm! I am so happy to know my artwork and words touch your heart! xo
Wonderful work! Valerie
Wow, you are making wonderful progress in Sketchbook Skool! Your sketchbook is a treasure. Hugs, Terri
Thanks Terri and Valerie!
Hi, You are invited to share this with Feline Art Friday:

Wow I love where this sketch book school is taking everyo nes artwork!! To a new level! Beautiful!
beautiful words and art!
Thanks Deb, Gigglies and Laurie — on my way to check your sites out!
Ooh,all of this looks so good.I wish I was so disciplined .Love your handwriting and the sketches of course.
Your sketches are also good!
It seems like the summerskool is a good thing to be part of, and the way you tell about it makes me want to be part of it 😉
Your polished shell looks awesome!!! All your pieces look wonderful 🙂
I’ll check out your blog and will follow it, if it’s possible.
Oh, and my art blog is on this address: ih-billedkunst.blogspot.de
Thanks — I may do a critique of sketchbook skool. The Seeing course is much better than the Beginnings. Your Frida’s are wonderful — curious, why did you not stick with WordPress?
I love your sketchbook art. Such a lovely expression of your talent.
Wow your sketch book is amazing. So much to look at and so very nice.
Thank you Beth and Nicole!
The one book one pen challenge was fun. I missed all the different colors. I was surprised my pen has held out. I can say it helped me focus more on the writing and less on the other stuff.
I like color, and to limit myself to one pen didn’t work for me so I didn’t! However, for a person who is nto a sketcher, this is a good exercise — gets you to basics.
Katie – saw a quote over the weekend that made me think of you.
“Don’t worry if you’re making waves simply by being yourself. The moon does it all the time.” By Scott Stabile. (I know you don’t worry, but thought the connection to the moon making waves was lovely).
