Free Pamphlet Binding Class

I have just opened a free Pamphlet Binding class. It’s in 5 parts with a bonus structure in part 6! I originally created this class as part of a series of binding classes. I’m opening these portions of it as a free class so that students in my November 1, 2018 SketchKon workshop can make […]

More Changes for CR

It has been a long weekend of change. Friday we got a call from the care facility that CR would need to move into the memory ward. We had expected this day would come, but it still seems like it happened very fast.  His short term memory disappeared a couple years ago. Both Dick and […]

Easy Art Supply Shopping for Roz’s SketchKon Workshop

Wet Paint is my favorite locally owned independent art supply store. They have always been helpful by bringing in items that I need for my binding and art classes. They also put kits together for my local and online classes. While there is no kit or set supplies for my SketchKon 2018 Class “Donuts” there […]

Richard Doesn’t Have a Clue

Yesterday was Father’s Day and like many fortunate people who have parents who are not only still living but living nearby we spent the afternoon with Dick’s dad CR. We brought treats and sat and talked. Later we struggled to get him into clean, fresh clothing. CR has lost the ability to stand for even […]

A Little Hiatus While Some Technical Issues and Deadlines Are Addressed

I have some great posts in the draft stage, including a review of the journal today’s image was created in, and of course the Stonehenge Aqua paper review. However, I’m stretched very thinly right now as I balance teaching the Drawing Practice class with resolving some long standing technical issues about my website. Because of […]

I  find that even a quick sketch of dogs will bring me out of a funk and get me back to focusing on actions I can take to turn things around. Dogs are about living in the present moment. If we can't live with them (and currently I don't have dogs) we can still remember and learn from them as we draw them. (These are two lovely dogs on Sktchy.)

Project Friday: How To Deal with Crappy Days in Your Visual Journal

Here’s a question I’m asked frequently: How do you deal with crappy days in your journal? Not long ago a student explained to me that when she kept a written journal she would often write about the stress and frustration in that journal, but then never look back at it.  She felt that her visual […]

Since prepainting backgrounds is an important part of the play and puzzle aspect of my practice comparison tests […]
