Memory journal


Green grocer

Favourite foods

Favourite old bags

I go to a music appreciation class and while the lecturer plays pieces of music I do sketches in my memory journal. I am doing things like my favourite bags, favourite foods, my local green grocer, and other things that spring to mind. Next to the sketches I write about the memories as well. I am loving doing it. It interests me how the memory alters things and is often not very accurate.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia

These are a really bold effort - given that you are doing them from memory. You reallyu have become so much more confident.

I couldn't help but see a correlation between every DAY matters and every day THINGS that matter to us. What a wonderful exercise and your sketching ability is coming right along. I like the bags!!

And how about adding some more images? I’m not trying to offend anyone, site is really nice. But as I know people acquire info much more effective when there are certain helpful images.
