Our Sketchbook Project 2012

Saturday I mailed out our sketchbook for the  Sketchbook Project 2012 ‘s  January 31 deadline-whew.

It’s a project I’ll always remember because it’s a collaboration with my son Julian.  Julian inspired the concept, and we worked together truly as a team.

While I will forever treasure the memories of being a mom for my children when they were small, it’s a different kind of joy to work with my grown-up son as a friend and fellow artist.  Also a joy that our book will take a journey that we aren’t able to take ourselves, to fourteen cities around the world, and then return home to live at the Brooklyn Art Library.

I’ll be putting together a PDF of Water Music soon.   There are more collaborations with my grown-up kids coming this year.  I’m looking forward to sharing them with you.
