January is over which means I'm officially one month into my 2016 sketchbook "resolution" and I'm actually loving it. These little paintings have been so much fun, and I have some exciting plans for the February sketchbook. Until then, enjoy this little gathering of my first month of sketchbook paintings.
Little Women's Christmas
From Libya to Mars
Sunrise Over Stone Mountain
A River Of Stars
Jackalope In Spring
Jackalope At Sunset
Snowy Nights In Narnia
The Search For Honey
If you've been following the sketchbook project on Facebook or Instagram you may have noticed that quite a few of these were inspired by books. Here's the list of my recommended January books, all in one place for your convenience.
