During the trip from Portland to Southern Oregon down the I-5 corridor I sketched.
I’d made a small folding journal from some grey arches paper for the trip.
Never at the last minute before a trip take to gluing your folded journal together…
I did it wrong and had to undo the glued parts and piece in another part and so there are funny crinkles and nearly bald spots in the middle pages.
Sorry bad images. Middle of the night I pulled the glued pages apart!
When I got home I added watercolor over several days in the middle of the night.
Watercolor on this absorbent paper was a new experience for me,
especially the splashy washes I created, which the paper ate quickly!
I wrote into the journal later… too personal for my family so not sharing.
Basically, continuing stories of dementia and what happens with the elderly
in the good ‘ol USA unless they are very wealthy.

“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
