The last page.
I went to the Portland Art Museum this morning. I drew a bronze Japanese hawk sculpture from the 1800's. Because of the restrictions in the museum I could only do the pen and ink there. I added the watercolor after I got home.
This is the last page in my journal so it's time to begin a new one. I bought two - one is smaller, another is larger than this one. Smaller because my sketches aren't intended to be permanent works of art so smaller/quicker is better. Larger because some of these have actually turned out to where they should be matted and framed so I should give myself the opportunity to develop the images more. I'm split on which to use. Regardless I have the hardest time cutting bound journals apart so what's the point really. Obviously I have unresolved issues. Fortunately my unresolved issues aren't anything critical in the big picture. I'll eventually figure it out. Until then I'll enjoy the journey, whichever way it takes me.
