When my kids were small, I didn’t have much time to sketch. So instead, I noted colors in my journal, then translated them into simple horizontal lines during downtime. This practice became a foundation for my color education. Hundreds of small paintings later, these color studies not only illustrate how I register the world but are paintings in their own right.
When I was nine a family friend gave me The Nothing Book. I carried it everywhere and this habit became permanent — I am never without my journal. My sketchbooks hold my brain: the galumphing to-do list, jottings, inspiration, places to visit, music to listen to, books to read, movies to see, endless doodles, potential painting titles, dreams and schemes, kids appointments, my calendar, and the rest of the beat.
