A little curiosity, a little internet searching, and a wish comes true. I found some wonderful sites featuring artists’ notebooks. Some of the notebooks are famous, some not. But the great variety of them makes for pleasurable viewing.
The experience teaches me that I have definitely not made sufficient use of my notebooks. And after seeing what John Constable and Claude Monet did with their notebooks — surveying the wonderful images that they stuffed into their pockets — I’m thinking I really need to “get out more.”
Wonder if my koi would mind my paying them a house call? I could stuff my pockets with fish. I could put buckets of water in my pockets, too. Why not the whole pond? Or, the heck with koi. A world beckons!
