This is how I spent a couple of hours yesterday.
Holding art made by artist friends that I met online by visiting the storefront that Art House Co-op has in Brooklyn, NY home of The Sketchbook Project. By the way, the books from 2012 will be on tour check out where by clicking here to see if it will be in a city near you.
I am happy to announce that I was able to find all 4 books that I came to see.
They each have blogs so I highly recommend that you click on their names and visit their world for a bit, learn more about them and their art. They are all so talented.
This week I want talk about Pauline specifically
- visit next Sunday to hear more about the other three ladies.
I met Pauline when we both participated in Beth Nichols', Do What You Love e-course - which I cannot recommend enough. It was a lovely experience.
While Pauline was filling the pages of her sketchbook I shared with her that her book would be in Brooklyn and that it was easy for me to get there to see it in person.
Well, I finally made it.
Pauline and I have kept in touch
but we've never met in person...yet.
We read each other's blogs,
email, share life stories with one another
and I've even purchased some of her art via her etsy store.
You should check it out.
I cannot tell you how much joy this brought me.
She left me a note on the back inside cover. So adorable!
By the way, these ladies inspired me...I've signed up to participate in The Sketchbook Project 2013.
What are waiting for?
Why don't you join me?
