from one generation to the next
The Sisterhood of The Travelling Sketchbook now has it’s own blog: Follow the journey… https://sisterhoodofthetravellingsketchbook.wordpress.com
I’ve consciously kept Please Pass The Recipe free from extraneous posts about affairs outside the realms of the kitchen, but I do have other interests besides food and most of them are creative in some way or another.
Ann, a botanical artist has bound together a book from paper ends of old sketchbooks, some with remnants of artwork. Sixteen bloggers from around the globe are going to add their own personal touch to the Travelling Sketchbook. I’m the second contributor, and while I’m not really obsessed about food, it seemed that as I came to this wonderful concept through my food blog it was apt to stay on point.
I’m very proud of my artistic family. I’m the living link between my paternal Grandfather an artist of note but not notoriety (he was an stamp designer/engraver) and my gifted and incredibly creative grandaughter. I’ve dabbled with 2D art forms for my entire adult life. I turn to the camera most often because of this blog, but I love to draw, usually large strong multi media images, but sometimes a delicate watercolour or coloured pencil drawing will appear by my hand.
The words I write that are most appreciated by strangers are recipes for delicious food, so I’ll let the image of my contribution speak for itself.
Later today, if time is on my side, the Travelling Sketchbook will be flying again, this time to Megan in Melbourne. Megan has created an amazing interactive map to help you follow the journey of the sketchbook.
A textile craftswoman, Kate from North Queensland created the first inclusion, a patchwork blue feather to honour’s Anne’s artistic pursuits.
