I'm very enamored with the simple watercolor sketches I've been making lately, and thought I should start making them on nice watercolor paper so I could frame any favorites. Somehow the bumpy, crisp, starchy-smelling paper commands more of my time, so it's hard to stay simple. I do like the integration of text in the above piece. 

I also tried making one on handmade paper with lots of thin layers of acrylic, but there was just no spontaneity in that. I realize that the sketches may just be their own thing...a mediation that is not meant to produce finished pieces but they compel me to explore the options.
