More Thoughts From Chekov

Brush pen and ink wash in a lined non-art paper notebook. Sketching while watching “Top Chef.” And thinking as I move through my day.

TV Competition Shows

Chekov was prescient. Brush pen and ink wash in a bookstore lined notebook (because I love painting and using wet media like ink wash on non-art papers).

You Are the Why

  I was searching for something the other day in the rabbit warren of my digital files now under reconstruction.  In a happy accident I found something I posted years ago. It’s something that’s in the non-public archive so I can’t give you a link. But I wanted to revisit the text. I was writing […]

You Always Have Time for a Quick Brush Pen Sketch

  I really enjoy looking at this page spread from last fall after I got out of the hospital. I felt strong enough to stand at the counter and flick the pen around the page. We were back at home with fresh bread and great meat, and a really great tomato! Getting back to our […]

What I Did in the Pandemic: Zooming

During the Pandemic I did Zoom calls with friends, as you’ll learn if you read this page spread—which is full of writos; it was late, I was tired, but you can tell what I meant to write in context. For the first time in 43 years I was learning what it was like to have […]

In Context: My Life Is a Stream of Detective Shows

…often the detectives meet on the page. Update: People didn’t recognize Ray Collins as Lt. Arthur Tragg from the long-running “Perry Mason” with Raymond Burr. Yes, he has nothing to do with Poirot, that’s what I meant by my life being a stream of detective shows—meeting on the page. If you’re one of the folks […]

What I Did in the Pandemic: Sketched MORE Peppers Of Course!

  Peppers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and I eat quite a lot of them. Here, two years past the sketches in my last post, I’m still sketching peppers. I’ll always sketch them.  That’s because I’m always eating them. I don’t think a day goes by when I don’t have at least […]

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 […]

Blick’s White Sulphite Drawing Paper

The other day a friend stopped over with some of Blick’s White Sulphite Drawing Paper. She was going to do some gel printing on it, but she thought I might enjoy testing it. I did. I videotaped my first drawing session using this paper. You can hear my opinions about the paper and learn other […]

My Favorites Are Not Your Favorites; It’s a Good Thing

It always momentarily amazes me which paintings I post on Instagram get the most likes. Paintings I absolutely love usually gain low scores. Dogs and chickens are popular. I understand that. I offer this comment here for past students who may wonder why people are not falling in love with the painting they just posted […]
