While I focus mostly on the larger format journals I forget that the mini-journals I fill often have interesting and inspirational pages in them too. I often do these pages to while away the time when I’m waiting for other work to dry. But when I remember to go through them I am almost always surprised and delighted by some forgotten pages. In fact there are times when I don’t remember doing them at all! These pages below were done in my Moleskine journal, one that I rarely share in this blog because the work is generally more personal. But these have been and are the inspiration for some larger abstracts I am doing now on canvas.
