We Work With What We Have

Left: In the smallest landscape Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook which is about 6 x 4.25 inches—a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch from a photo in the Sktchy app, while waiting in the doctor's patient room.

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S. Growing up in Australia, poppies were reserved for Remembrance Day, November 11. One of us would […]

Remembrance Day: Thoughts in 2014

Above: Video about Shell Shock which emerged during the First World War. If the video doesn't play go to this YouTube link. (And from there you can also see the links to the other three parts.)
