For me, making the first mark on a new sketchbook is always the hardest. My dear friend, Betty, gave me a beautiful handmade journal for Christmas. I've been afraid to mess it up - but finally decided now was the time to make my mark!
Inspired by the sound of a rooster crowing this morning, I started with a simple pencil sketches; added a little ink and and colored pencils.
