Exquisite Corpse with Wet Paint

Above: An 18 x 30 inch acrylic painting I made on Stonehenge white. I began with a series of sketches and thumbnails. I blew elements up and composed them into place.

We Train Each Other Bit By Bit

  Left: CR after his haircut and walk, sitting as still as can be. Ink pen and watercolor on an 8 inch square page in a Seawhite journal. Sometimes learning happens slowly, without us noticing it. In August after I cut CR’s hair Dick took him for a walk. When they returned I was just finishing […]

Friday Double Feature: Voice-Overs

Above: Today's image has absolutely nothing to do with the movies discussed below. I just like to have images at the start of my posts, and this was some fun I had with the brush pen one night doing quick memory sketches as I watched TV (i.e., I let the TV continue running and try […]
