Abandoning Art

I’ve not been posting many sketches recently as the weather has been unpleasant.  While our winter is not as bad as other places, chilly and wet is not conducive to watercolor sketching.  I may be a wimp in comparison to Shari in Montreal, who sketches from her car in frigid temps!

That doesn’t mean I’m not creating.  My latest fad is making small, handmade, books.  I’m leaving them in various places, participating in the Art Abandonment movement.   Unfortunately, the group is only on Facebook:   https://www.facebook.com/groups/ArtAbandonment/

I use printed card stock sold for scrap-booking and sew in some Canson MultiMedia paper.

Then I leave somewhere, with a note that it’s left for someone to freely take and info on the Art Abandonment group.

I’ve also left some watercolor note cards as well as some of my photography cards.

From today:

Here’s an album with most of what I’m made and dropped.
