Thank you all for such thoughtful comments on our family sketchbook project. I had some questions about how long I sketch each day. Right now? Probably at least an hour, because there is time and enthusiasm! Hopefully, when this gets hard, I will have some technique and a little experience to create a rhythm to getting my sketches done each day.
Above is a sketchbook page of one of my favorite quotes, and one I try to remember when I'm thinking through what to keep and what to purge around the house. When I start to "rank" my belongings and decorations this way, it simplifies the process of paring down greatly for me.
