Finally I want to share images of my art journals. They're just notebooks made of 140 lb. watercolor paper, and decorated with acrylic paints and inks.

I had the privilege to attend a Golden Acrylic Paints 2-hour demo today at Arizona Art Supply in downtown Phoenix. The artist, Nancy Reyner, is a powerhouse and an extraordinary artist and author.
