In Context: A Little Doodling

You’ll remember that in December I was trying to finish a couple journals so I could count the pages in my yearly total. By the start of December I knew that unless something drastic happened I would have no problems meeting that goal. Everything was progressing at a rational (i.e., no long sessions of drawing, […]

What I Did in the Pandemic: Pepper Sketches Of Course!

    I’ve been trying to get my digital files organized, and I came across this post from 2020 during the pandemic. I don’t know why I had this large landscape book, and Akademie Watercolor Journal from Hahnemühle.  This is their student line of paper. The book is nicely bound, the paper is OK, but […]

In Context: Regrets?

  I certainly don’t regret using one of the last pages of a defunct and beloved watercolor paper to sketch only in ink…but you can click on the image and see in context what I do regret.

End of Year Wrap Up 2023

I am a log keeper a chart maker. I always have been. The chronology of tasks and events is something that has always interested me. Perhaps because we moved so often when I was a child the records I kept also kept me grounded in a quickly changing arrangement of locations and faces.  I have […]

My Overly Developed Sense of…

Dick and I discussed this recently—the dust has settled, Buddy has had a productive year since his return. He is hanging in there. But Dick and I both agree that the first words, I screamed were, “I’ve killed Buddy.” I don’t know why I didn’t write that on the day. I know most of the […]

A Page From My Journal

12.24.23  Dick called when I was about to die. I didn’t pick up because the phone was in another room and while I usually can hear it ringing I didn’t. My mind had closed down to that unique focus of an instant of surprise. The realization “This is it.” Followed by “what can I do […]

In Search of a Pen, One Finds…

After sketching for a couple hours with a dried out pen I came into the packed up studio to find a new pen. I picked up a Sakura Professional Brush Pen FB and started to scribble a couple lines on a piece of newsprint that was sitting on the cutting table.  The pen felt great […]

Changing Things Up

There have been a lot of changes in my life recently. I’ll discuss more about them when they make sense. But at the same time, in the midst of all this. I do what I always do, I look for ways to stir up my art life. In the beginning of September in response to […]

In Context: Anywhere But Here…

Typically when I process my images into bloggable sizes I put them in a folder titled to hint at what I want to discuss in a post containing those images. These folders go into my “possible blog posts” folder which currently has 663 folders. EEEK I’d better get writing. Well today’s image was in a […]
