Daily sketches begin

I bought the Artist's Way over the summer and have just, in the last week, sat down to read it and go through the exercises. The one thing I am suppose to do - according to the book - is "artist's pages" which is just a brain dump first thing in the morning, 3 written pages of whatever comes to mind. A way to flush things out and clear my mind. I have also decided to put to use the nice 5.5x8 inch sketchbook my friend Guillermo gave me for Christmas to do another kind of daily log. I call the book "Day in the Life: ordinary object sketches". So that each day I also take time to draw something that happens to be around me.

This is one of my houseplants and my first "ordinary object" sketch.
