Something winged this way comes

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

I am frustrated today because my Yahoo email is bouncing and every reactivation request I’ve put in is not working. I get error messages back that reassure me that Yahoo is working hard to upgrade its sites to serve me better and if I don’t hear anything after 4 hrs to get updates here (and [...]

Hollywood Nights

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

At the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Avenue, there’s a big shopping complex where jazz concerts are held on warm summer evenings. You can buy a glass of wine and listen to great music, and then stroll around the shops. I didn’t draw it in this view, but the whole center court has a [...]

LACMA Courtyard

Tuesday, July 4th, 2006

We went to the LA County Museum of Art yesterday, saw some exhibits (not Hockney, we didn’t have enough time for that) but the one on art glass was wonderful. At one point we took a break in the courtyard. Here are some of the people that were sitting close enough to see, but far [...]

Dog on the run

Tuesday, June 6th, 2006

Click for larger My friend Katherine Tyrell is teaching a wet canvas class in drawing and sketching in public, so it thought it would be fun to participate in some of her assignments and challenges. It sort of takes all the surprise out of it when I come up with my own challenges and it’s [...]

White Poppy

Friday, March 31st, 2006

Someone please tell me what possessed me to try to paint white poppies on a Moleskine page previously toned with darker paint? As a first attempt with a difficult flower it would have made a lot more sense to use watercolor paper and reserve the whites. But no … I had to do it the [...]

Another opening, another show

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

A different view of an opening magnolia blossom from Descanso. As part of an ongoing experiment with some art friends, I painted the background with Van Dyke brown watercolor, then scumbled some white gouache over top. When that was dry I drew the flower and stems and painted it with watercolor and gouache, and touched [...]

A nest in the west – Illo Friday Spring

Tuesday, March 28th, 2006

For more current spring paintings from my journals … click here . Last springtime, a finch family came looking for nesting quarters and decided that the eaves were not nearly as hospitable as one of my hanging Boston ferns. I saw the frantic search for twigs and grasses, the constant flying to and fro of [...]

Two guys out for a walk

Monday, March 27th, 2006

Seen at a farmer’s market … a man and his lizard. I liked the look of the these two buds, hanging out together, getting some fresh air and a snack. Some days it actually is easy being green.

My artworkbooks

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

As you can see, I use my journals for a lot of different purposes, not only for sketching pleasure. As I’ve committed myself to doing more painting this year, I find that I’m reaching for it more and more as a practical workbook, not a chronological diary of my days. In fact, I have numerous [...]

Chinese New Year 2006 – Part 2

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

Lions dance through fields of firecracker debris. Surely good fortune will follow. Brush pen in my Moleskine … memories of the Chinese New Year parade.
