Excitement over Lard

You’d think it was a slow day from my excited comment about lard on this journal page. It’s wistfulness. I bought two types of lard from “Fat City.” They reached expiration date (even stored in the freezer!) because I didn’t have the kitchen space to set up to make some savory pies, during this downsizing […]

Studies: Observing the Subject Over and Over

Studies are something all visual artists do, pretty much every day.  Studies are about cementing the observation of a subject into a visual approach you can apply to your paper or canvas. But studies don’t always happen before you make a more finished piece. On this page spread, which is in a Canson 180 Sketchbook […]

In Context: I Invent a New Game for Two Or More

You can read the text on the page spread if you click to enlarge it. As to the brush and ink wash sketch—I was watching the Great British Baking show that evening.

Try, Try Again

I watch the British Police drama “Vera.” (In the US you can see it on PBS, but awhile back I started watching it on Britbox and think the episodes come in a bit earlier.)  I watch it because I’m totally in love with Brenda Blethyn. She’s so amazing. But as I’ve already discussed on my […]

In Context: Faces and Advice

No missing text for this post, just an in-context post from my journal. (Bakers from the Great British Baking Show.)

Why I Do What I Do: Still More on Watching TV…

Sometimes I watch TV just so I can sketch Ryan Stiles—because he makes me laugh and laugh, and laugh. (At the time of this post American episodes of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” can be seen on HBOMax.) And because, while he doesn’t have a beard, and his hair style has stayed basically the same […]

Why I Do What I Do: More on Watching TV…

Sometimes I watch TV just to sketch cowboys. They, like pirates and brigands, usually have interesting hair, beards, and they often make weird facial expressions. (Brush pen and watercolor on lined notebook paper.)

Why I Do What I Do: Watching TV…

Some times I watch TV just so I can sketch pirates and brigands. They usually have a lot of hair, a beard, and a snarl from saying “Arrrgghh.” All of which are fun to sketch. (Brush pen and ink wash in a Canson 180 sketchbook.)

Thoughts on Nose Rings

Dick claims that we talk more than most married couples. I don’t know about that, but I do know that our conversations are far-ranging. This past fall my lung situation was pretty bad. I didn’t have a lot of energy for multiple bouts of the downsizing packing, unpacking, sorting—as well as work and cooking. So […]

Three Views of Actor Michael Sheen

Actors can be mercurial, artists can change the way they want to see things just as quickly. In the span of an evening last February I tried out three ways to look at actor Michael Sheen on paper. (When I drew these sketches I was watching an episode of “Prodigal Son,” which I enjoyed and […]
