The watercolor portion of this piece is done. On a side note, I meet with Susi at Susi Laura Massage Therapy today. They are going to feature my art for the next three months. I will be hanging my work this coming weekend. I am very excited as this is the first time I will be doing anything like this.

Back to normal

Well I am back to my normal venue. This is from a photo from our yard. It is some vines and beans growing on our arbor.

It's back

I got swamped at work last week and couldn't get to my daily sketch. Well today starts a new week. So far so good. This one is in charcoal.

Rings revisited

I did some more work on this piece. I still don't like it, but I had fun doing it. I just don't have the vision for this type of work.

Thursday's Sketch

I didn't get a chance to sketch yesterday. I wanted to redo the charcoal monkey because I did such a poor job. This time I tried graphite. I little better, but nothing to write home about. (but well worth a blog post)

1/11 Sketch

I always have trouble making two or more people in the same piece look in proportion to each other so i chose this image for todays daily sketch. It in in ink.

Garden Gate

Here is the finished charcoal piece. It is 18" x 20". I know it is not the greatest, but I had fun making it. I see more coming down the road.

Daily Sketch

I started todays sketch in ink. But I was quickly now pleased with it.

But then I had the bright idea to kick over to charcoal and get a little more expressive. Much happier with this one.


I used to love doing charcoals, so decided to try one again. I am not feeling the love I used to. Not half as much fun as dripping and splatting paint.

Daily Sketch

After a year or of doing abstracts I realized I have not been drawing or sketching anymore. Well I am going to rectify that with a daily sketch. The swan was done yesterday with a conte crayon. The woman with a carpenters pencil.

Well I made another attempt at a beer bottle abstract. I have concluded that this is not a style for me. I am not happy with the results and had no joy in making it.
