discover

one of my favorite things to do is sit in front of the tv at night and doodle on a piece of graph paper......all of those fabulous little squares wait so patiently to be filled! and you would think that with a studio full of supplies i would choose something interesting to doodle with, but i've discovered that i absolutely love using a plain ol' pencil! maybe one of these days i'll abandon my fascination for graphite and move on into the world of colored pencils.....but i have a feeling it's gonna be a slow transition!
happy weekend to you!


p.s. our sweet bloggy friend becky shander has been one of the featured artists this week over at crescendoh......congrats to you becky!!

I know what you mean about the pencil, Lori! Seems like I can come up with some genius designs while I'm talking on the phone...it's translating those to ink or goauche that seems to elude...

oh my! I have a whole tablet of graph paper, and never thought to use it to doodle!!! Oooohhh! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Delicious letters Lori! Reminds me of Tom Perkins beautifully carved letters. :)

I just adore your doodling, lori! I'll bet that you will make yourself a graph paper mini journal to sketch in, in the evenings! What a sweet treat!
{Thank you for your kind comment!}

Oh and there's no better smell than freshly sharpened pencils. The real wood kind. Not those plastic things I've seen in my kid's backpack.

Sheesh, I wish I could doodle like you!

There's just something about your writing that makes me want to read more!! I haven't doodled on graph paper yet.....I'd probably want to keep things in the lines!! Ugh! May just give this a try soon :D

I just adore your lettering. Always beautiful. And yes, I love filling those little squares too!

Becky Shander said...

Even when you use a plain pencil, your doodles are colorful...the brightness comes from you.

Thank you for your sweet congrats and good energy. You're always so thoughtful and I appreciate it very much.

Lori...your doodles are adorable no matter what you choose to doodle with! Graph paper and a regular old pencil work just fine...your talent is always there!
Happy Sunday, Sweetie! xoxo Paulette

Oh my gosh girlfriend. I love graph paper and doodling on it. I like to draw designs and then color parts in with markers, make celtic work etc. How fun we like the same. Have a great week.

I'll have to pick up some graph paper. I usually have a few notebooks laying around to sit and make notes and such. But you should give charcoal pencils a try. They're awesome!

tami said...
