I've been thinking...and a new name

So I've been thinking. School holidays will do that. We have done a lot of fun activities but I have only managed one sketch for myself (see below) and so have been ruminating instead.

Jodi Wiley sketch - ink and watercolour. Pot plants in the backyard.

I really want to write more on this blog about the sketching life: the process, materials, the choosing-of-subject-matter, the finding-of-time, the why and the how of it. I want to write about my own experiences of maintaining (or trying to maintain) a sketching practice amid a busy family life and connect with fellow-sketchers along the way.

I would love to hear from you - what kinds of things would you like to read about? I'm no expert but I like to sketch and I like to write and I also like to share. Questions, comments, feedback and ideas welcome! Please reach me at jodi@jodiwiley.com or facebook or instagram.

Lastly, a bit of housekeeping. The domain name for this blog is changing from artbywiley.com to jodiwileysketches.com to better reflect what it's about. In a couple of days the switch will be official so if you currently have this blog listed in your bloglovin' or feedly or other blog feed reader, please re-enter it as jodiwileysketches.com to keep receiving my extremely infrequent posts!
