Large Artist Sketchbook 2021 Pages 7 and 8

Here’s another one of my artist sketchbooks for you to see. It was finished in May of 2021 but the artworks were done over the previous year or so, I guess. I’ll be showing you page spreads, one each week, for as long as the book goes on.

As you know, I make these books for my own enjoyment. I work on a page as the inclination strikes me and I never have a plan for the book or for the artwork that goes into it. There is no theme, no meaning, other than what each image shows the viewer and the viewer takes away from the experience.

In this book I did artwork on the front and back of each page. There’s nothing written associated with the images, and the images paired in each page spread do not relate to each other in any way except for being side by side.

I hope you enjoy looking at this book!

Here is the page spread for today:

And here are the individual pages.

      Yes. I saw this image again today and thought of a blue jay who has been living in the vicinity of my back window since last fall, I just saw him yesterday, and the whole thought of birds and spring and so on really cheered me up.

      Thank you. I think these smaller scale works make me happy because they are meant to be viewed close up, and I can put lots of detail in them, and use more subtle images or combine things a little differently. I do like these two images a lot, they are happy.
