What Is a Study?

    Artists often make “studies” of a subject before they jump into working on a painting or detailed drawing. Why is it useful? Why is it important? I think a study is a notion of the bright sparkly possibilities ahead.  When we look at a subject we recognize something and try to get that […]

Keeping Your Mind in the Present Moment

Seems like you can’t turn around these days without someone telling you to keep your mind in the present moment. I tell my students that all the time. I have told students for 30 years that being able to keep your mind in the present moment is one of the main benefits of journaling. I’m […]

In Context: Page from My Green-lined Journal

After my first eye surgery I struggled to get used to the corrections in one eye and living with the fact that the right eye cataract couldn’t be corrected until the next surgery; so what output am I capable of? I also wasn’t able to exercise. So I watched a lot of television. I returned […]

Registration for Textures Class Closes Friday

Project Friday—Let’s Collage

Hair Cuts and Their Aftermath

Nope I didn’t have a hair cut. I still have my braids. Periodically I give CR a hair cut. He’s too frail now for me to load him into the car and take him to the female barber I found for him, and whom he grew to enjoy. Now he has me. After the hair […]

Self-Assessment: 2018—Filling Journals, Using Up Paint

  Some Background and The Brand of Paint I’ve Been Using Lately Yes, this painting actually has something to do with self-assessment and goal setting. First I want to say something about the materials… While I did sketch some more after painting this image yesterday (Dec. 31, 2018) this turned out to be my final […]
