The Journey Begins

I've finally got started. Have designed the front cover of my sketchbook, found some great time and life quotes to drop in amongst my sketches and doodles and have been out and about taking sneaky photos of people doing their thing. Or in some cases, sitting and enjoying the sun, which is still a 'thing' and great to do.

Who, What and Why?

My name is Lavender George and I am an artist living in Bournemouth, UK, and I decided to join in the Arthouse Co-op sketchbook project for 2012. You can find all the details on this project from the Arthouse site: http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject
I chose the title "Time Travellers" for my sketchbook. We are all time travellers, I'm a traveller from the 1960's, my parents were travellers from the 1930's and 40's and my children have been travelling since the 1980's. So, I shall be out and about in Bournemouth and Poole sketching the time travellers around me and studying how we are all spending the precious time that we have.
I shall post pictures of my sketches and descriptions of them and how I'm getting on with the project here until January, when the sketchbook has to be completed and returned.
I will also be making some of the sketches into paintings and these will be posted on my website: http://www.lavendergeorge.co.uk/
I hope you can join me on this journey.
My sketchbook is dedicated to Victor and Iris Kersey who reached the end of their journeys in 2008.
