Road Trip

Monday, July 30th, 2007

“Napa Purple House – sketchbook entry – 4″ x 6″ – watercolor and felt tip pen – orig. not for sale – print available This weekend we made the trek to the SF Bay area to visit with our daughter before she heads back to business school in the fall. We had a great time [...]

Seed Fields

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

Seed Fields – sketchbook page – SOLD There was no time to paint today, so before I head off to bed I did this quick watercolor sketch of one of the seed growers field that we pass by on our way up the coast to Santa Maria. The agricultural economy is changing and many of [...]

­ Minerva Getty

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007

Minerva – 9 x 12 graphite drawing on pastel paper – after Nollekens Yesterday I had the opportunity to return to the Hillside Getty in Sepulveda Pass for a little drawing practice. I just had time for two drawings this time – This first was this Minerva, the Roman equivalent of Athena, goddess of war. [...]

Octavia at the Getty

Tuesday, March 13th, 2007

Today was a not so terrific day. I’m still getting over the tonsillitis/flu or whatever is camping in my throat and making me miserable – and I’m probably going to have to go see the doc about it tomorrow. It’s been almost a week and I’m just plain tired of it and going around whispering. [...]

Asparagus – Watercolor painting

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

Asparagus 9 x 12 – 100 lb. paper From my sketchbook …. When asparagus shows up in stores it’s a sure sign of spring, even if it comes from Chile or who knows where. My dear husband knows how much I love the vegetable and when it appears for a good price at Trader Joe’s [...]

Bronze Nude – Getty

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

Torso after Maillol – 9 x 12 charcoal on toned paper In the sculpture garden of the West Pavilion are several Maillol bronze nudes, two of which I had time to draw. In many ways this was more challenging than the interior marble sculptures because of the dazzling bright sunlight and the dark reflectivity of [...]

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 [...]

Geranium way (sketch)

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

Another fast and rough sketch in the 9 x 12″ Raffine… in preparation for doing another painting in watercolor or oils. This one was painted with a half inch flat and a #12 round. Late afternoon on a tropical California side street. In fact, it’s right next door to this house Capistrano Fence which I [...]

Sycamore Grove

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

Yesterday I got my first Raffine sketchbook by Lana, recommended by Lin Frye, so I decided to give it a test drive. The 9 x 12″ paper is very thick and slightly absorbent, and I’d say it takes a wet wash pretty well without bleeding through the back side of the paper. There was only [...]

Rosarium Two

Friday, July 28th, 2006

This watercolor sketch of the Descanso Gardens Rosarium was actually painted about a month ago, at the same time that I was primarily posting daily sketches of Cat Mandu. I knew that we were on borrowed time with her, and I wanted to share her drawings while she was still alive. The flowers will always [...]
