My Secret Journal: Seven, Graffiti

Note:  I am writing a story/journal that I don’t want to show before it is published in full.  These are some of the illustrated pages in the sketchbook for the story.

Graffiti which used to be on a building in NW Portland (in the Pearl)
which I thought was a beautiful addition to the Chinese shop.
So glad I painted it before they painted it out!
I’m a bit of a graffiti fan — not so much the gang marking,
but some of the real artists who do very cool stuff.
For awhile someone had created a funny duck on the outside of our studio.
Sadly, I didn’t photograph it before our landlady painted it out.

Moleskin 8×11 watercolor journal.
Platinum Carbon pen, Greenleaf & Blueberry and Daniel Smith watercolors.
