Artist Trading Cards

I continue to sketch, but recently I got into 
playing with media & designs on Artists' Trading Cards.

Have a pre-cut 2.5" X 3.5" pile of heavier weight paper handy,
& as the mood strikes, Play!  I've been enjoying
some shimmering watercolor gold paint &
a white Sogno pen along with my usual Daniel Smiths.


Artist Trading Cards are 2.5" by 3.5", 
You never sell them, you trade them, says the originator
of this format/tradition.
They remind me of baseball cards, or,
the  "Funny Valentines" in my childhood that 
we collected & traded.

They fit nicely in my Chic Sparrow mini "Nano" journal cover,
so I can carry them around & give them away as 
I run into people.

I miss communicating with you all here...
I will try to post & read posts more often...

Daily Sketch Diary: Food & Nutrition

The Daily Page Sketch Diary continues, 
separate from my Daily Master Journal. 
Lately I have a focus on my food & nutrition. 
I eat in smaller quantities than I used to.
 There are some wonderful rewards

I eat less food but I draw it more.
I'm very grateful to be able to eat in a healthy manner.

Wow! This was the stem of a head of lettuce.

My little essay on broccoli & vegetables.
Why are humans more drawn to things like
sugar & alcohol which aren't nutritious than to broccoli? 
I don't have the answer, but I have had to accept it, and to learn 
to work at making healthy, mindful choices. 

How about you? Do you have any healthy practices 
around food & nutrition?
