We used the same pocket-sized Japanese-style folding book, but I rebound it with HP (hot press) watercolor paper, as is my preference with the regular books.
We are going to send the book back and forth between us, and when it’s done we’ll scan it and construct a copy so we each can have one. There are no rules: we can do whatever we want – no pressure! – and take as long as we like.
We do have a general theme though: Favorite Things. I started the book off by sketching a flower pot that Lisa gave me before she left. I have four rabbits, so this shape is quite appropriate! This is the same pot that I sketched recently with a few others on the porch.
Lisa has posted about our exchange on her blog, and has now added something to the book for me. I can’t wait to see it!

I have been negligent in recognizing the kind ackowledgement from no less than three of my fellow sketchbloggers: the Brillante webblog award. I must really deserve this These folks are all inspiring: check out their wonderful blogs and see for yourself!
The tradition is that I now nominate some other blogs, but this award has made quite the rounds. So, I will instead recommend a visit to any of the wonderful art blogs listed in the Places to Visit section, just to the right side of this page.
