A monochromatic focus on life this week spoke in blacks and whites - my sketchbook. Each evening when life slows down (my favorite part of the day) I settle in and therapeutically sketch simply with pen and ink.

Join Sally's Focus on Life series to see the monochromatic offerings this week.

  1. Love your sketching Lori! The bits that look a little like dandelion seed heads would look great printed on fabric.

  13. Your pen sketching is fabulous and a perfect subject for this week! I have started the practice of doodling at night. I find it very relaxing too. I have a long way to go but it gives me an excuse to buy more pens.
