Magic Village

Remembered some old drawings and felt like trying again.  (When I looked for said early pieces, they looked quite different.)  I'm enjoying these crazy buildings.   I like to imagine who lives there.

How to approach daily struggles.  These days, work at a standstill.

The Blank Page

Sometimes, the mind is blank.  Might as well use that as an idea then.

4 Trees again

The image of the 4 trees is still in my mind.  This time with my beloved pen and ink.

Apple Picking

What glorious days for apple picking!  Here is the Queen and her own tree.  (Each apple picked is a victory over squirrels!)

News from the Child

Very little bit of news last week.  More came later.  But for a while it was not quite enough. 

Sketch Club

Sketch Club at Sage.  Great session with Lorenzo, a king-like model.  Too bad they still had the AC on!  It was freezing.  Good there were many heaters for the model.

Blue Garden

This was a pretext to play with watercolor.  This is one of the reasons I really enjoy this drawing-a-day: sometimes I just try things with no concern about the result.

4 Trees # 3

Another version of the 4 trees.   Staying with the blue harmony and playing with material: collage, colored pencils, gouache and watercolor. 

Note to Child

Trouble with Blogger and couldn't post last night.  Here is my drawing for yesterday:  Note to Child.   (More fun to draw a bird than a computer.)

Rain and a Book

Nothing like a very rainy weekend and a good mystery novel.

4 Trees #2

A second version of the 4 Trees.  I wanted to try a color harmony with watercolor.  I like this theme.

 With September just here, and school starting, it feels like a good time for new beginnings.  ONWARD!

submission to ACG

Last week, I dropped my submission to Albany Center Gallery for their general call for art.   I've done that many times with no success.   I submitted an installation idea, using my morning meditation drawings from last year.  I call it Meditation in Pen and Ink (or Long Thing for short.)

4 Trees

This is inspired by a series of small sculptures of trees in Carrie Haddad Gallery.  Wish I remembered the name of the artist.  The trees weren't part of the show.  They were at the counter.  I loved them.
