A Colorful Portrait: I Love Lavender!

Here’s a portrait from 2021 that I haven’t posted. I can’t remember what the blog topic I wanted to address with it was. I look at it now and totally fall in love with the hair and the beard again. I love how it seems to be moving up and around of its own accord. […]

I can’t wait until […]

More Found Journal Pages…

Here’s a page spread of contour drawings from my “cataract surgery year” I just found. Both surgeries were past and we knew I’d be living permanently with the flare, glare, and double vision. But I still wanted to get my daily drawing in. And I believe I wanted to say something about using different pen […]

Why Keep Sketching the Same Subject?

A friend of mine once said he couldn’t understand how I could draw the same subject over and over. I do that a lot. Most notably daily drawings for 4 and a half years of my dog Dottie.  But my life is full of drawing the same subject over and over. Life drawing models I […]

Bob Newhart: Television Comedy

Spoiler Alert, I am going to give something important away. I’m sorry in advance. I cannot help myself. If you’ve ever been nearby when I talk TV you’ll know how much this thing I’m going to mention means to me and the art of writing for TV. So just know this: if you haven’t watched […]

In Context: Look and Look Again

Just a peek into one of my journals as I watch a baking show and sketch.  I have the sketches numbered as to order. The first gets at some of the bland but noticeable details, but no likeness. The second goes a bit past likeness and captures something a bit more fun. Giving yourself immediate […]

In Context: Thoughts on Downsizing

Today you can click on the image and read what I was reading and someone else’s thoughts on downsizing. My downsizing is ongoing. Often when we are involved in something we find other people who are involved in the same pursuit. It doesn’t matter if it is eldercare, or downsizing, or painting a good watercolor […]

Quick Studies

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, you’ve got time for a quick study. Focus on the details that matter the most to you. On somedays it might be a nose, a forehead, a hand, some shoes, or a color scheme. Often it’s little bits of light. Overtime, if you look back at your quick […]

Johnny Vegas—An Autobiography in Multiple Voices

Readers of RWU will know that sketches of Johnny Vegas make it into a post every now and then; and onto my instagram. I watch a lot of British TV. He’s on a lot of shows that I enjoy watching. I pick up a pen… Then the other day “the algorithm” threw out that Vegas […]
