I love my travel sketchbook. I’ve only been keeping it since January 2011, but we’ve gone to many places since them and it brings back such fond memories whenever I get it out.
But when we were in New Mexico, I was so busy working on the Sketchbook Project that I only did one sketch. And we’re leaving for the beach on Sunday! Catching up on my travel sketchbook is high on the priority list. Right up there with packing 🙂 Luckily, I pack light. Especially my art supplies. My Zentangle supplies fit in a box the size of a paperback with room for my paints.

Sometimes, I think I’d like to get something better, but this little $5 special holds my pencil, eraser, and water brush, while still acting as a palette and fitting in the pocket of my travel skirt.
So, while Birdie was at her 4H meeting tonight, I sat in the car and started a sketch of sunrise in Ruidoso, NM. Mountains are a challenge to me, living her in the flat lands, but I am improving.

The best thing was that when I showed Birdie, she knew exactly where it was. That makes me happy.
Happy PPF. Hope your painting makes you happy, too.
