You Lookin’ at ME?

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

Yesterday, after we finished scrambling up and down streambanks and walking over gently sloped hillsides covered with pine straw, my husband and I headed back to the car. He had walked on ahead a few yards and was turned around in my direction when he saw a slithering not far from me. Experienced Boy Scout [...]

Blues in the Woods

Saturday, May 27th, 2006

Today we drove up into the Angeles Crest National Forest to hear some music at Newcomb’s Ranch Inn … the only restaurant/road house in the vast national forest. Specifically, we drove the 45 minutes or so from our home to hear bluesman

A Young Lady

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

As I continue to work with watercolor in my year-long commitment to paint, I occasionally challenge myself to try a portrait, which is considerably more nerve-wracking than drawing plants or even some animals. A branch or twig can be in the wrong place and no one would notice. Put the nose in the wrong place [...]

Two of my favorite pups – 1998

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

“But time makes you bolder Children get older I’m getting older too” –Landslide, Stevie Nicks I was consolidating and cataloging some digital photos and came across this. Today … Mike just turned 21, and Rip’s almost 8. Bulldog puppies don’t get that characteristic jaw until they mature. When they’re this age they look pretty much [...]

Draw something Mom

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

I had been thinking of an image to represent motherhood for this weeks “Draw something Mom” prompt when I came upon a beautiful reference photo of a mother swan and two cygnets at Wet Canvas for the Weekend Art Event. Although this wasn’t a picture that I took, I felt very strongly attracted to it, [...]

Zoo Story – Part 1

Monday, May 15th, 2006

On our LA Zoo sketchcrawl on Saturday, I took along a bagful of different art supplies because I wanted to experiment drawing the animals using different tools that seemed appropriate for their textures and coloration. I’m going to be scanning them and posting them throughout the week, so please check back if you’re interested in [...]

My window view – a not so faraway place

Monday, May 8th, 2006

This is my return to the “Draw the view from your window” challenge. My intention is to do it for every season and to notice the differences in foliage and flowers. The tree is a Chinese elm, a hardy and vigorous grower that puts up suckers all over the yard, and promiscuously drops seeds with [...]

Approaching Storm

Friday, May 5th, 2006

Much of the time I’m unsatisfied with the outcome of what I’m drawing or painting. I’m rarely unsatisfied with the process of practice and learning, just unsatisfied with the result. I think this is natural for a student of any age, and I consider myself a student. However, every now and then I paint or [...]
