Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

My sketchbook has taken to flight.

My sketchbook has taken off on its long journey to Lindsay in the US. This is how it looked just before I pushed it out of the nest to test its wings.

I baptised my little creation “Rainbow moments”, thinking that instead of chasing the “pot of gold” that is always somewhere else, we should look closer at home to find the beauty of the “small moments of rainbow”, right here in front of us and the bigger the mixture, the greater the beauty.

…cover…or wrapping…or dummy….or clue…?

This is my handmade sketchbook, going off to be something of a Phileas Fogg… which there are seven of involved in this voyage which we called the Flying Pictures Project; started off by Lindsay in the US, who acted on her wishful thinking and gathered us together from around the globe to act along with her. So, there is Robyn in Italy, Nina in Sweden, Vivien in the UK, and Glen in the UK and Caseyand I, in France. We decided to make our own books, accordion style, each one choosing what she wants to do with her book and starting off the journey with 2 and 1/2 pages of art. The person receiving it, will add her own paper and continue with her 2 and 1/2 pages of art. And so the journey continues until the books finally arrive back home after 6 stops. 

To be continued…

  2. It’s a dream, Ronell and I see you’ve included the Mango!!! I so want to see the mango. It is so beautiful, so feminine and could only have been created by the woman who places fresh lavender under her pillows! And I don’t have to wait all that long (I hope!) until I get to open the envelope.

  7. Ronell, your book looks wonderful – at least what you’ve shown so far – and the project sounds exciting. How fabulous for the participants and those of us living vicariously through you. :)
