Perhaps you might see it as a hard choice. Should I keep an art journal, or a nature journal? But the truth is, that I find they both co-mingle and co-exist beautifully in the same journal. Needless to say, I am sure that I could convince myself to create another journal to use for NATURE art only, but then my journals would not be half so interesting :)

A dead dragonfly. You can always tell a homeschooler or artist because these things end up in the house in a box waiting. This one was waiting for DD and myself to draw/paint, obviously :) It now lives in DD's nature box... which you can see in this post.
