Walking in Chicago


I walked so much today that my feet are killing me. But I sure had fun. I went by downtown by myself, so I could move at my own pace. I am putting a charm bracelet together for our exchange student and needed a couple of Chicago charms....it really does not take a large excuse for me to spend the day in the city. I got a new little watercolor kit on sale at an art supply store across from the Art Insititue. I wanted to go into the museum, but sort of hated to spend the day indoors.

Things have been kind of crazy around here lately and I have not been doing a lot of drawing. I felt kind of timid at first, but then I really got into the swing of it. I love letter stamps and now I have 3 different sizes.

This is great - I like the way you have crowded a lot into the page - very city-like

I love this spread and you've really caught the reflective quality of 'The Bean'

That's a great page about your walk! Great letter stamps and reflections in the "bean!"
