I have many unfinished pieces from years of demonstrating techniques to students. This summer I have promised myself that I would finish some of this pieces. So I’ll begin with a pair of peony buds that I did in watercolor in 2002 or 2003. Time to finally add the graphite….a favorite way of mine to work. The combination of graphite and watercolor seems to be somewhere between finish and process, I love the way the two mediums compliment each other.
Our dog Smudge and cat’s Kiki and Smiley are always near by…always victim to my pen =)

Having lots of fun with my new Moleskine sketchbook.
When it came in the mail and sat in front of me all crisp
and new I was daunted by the clean newness of it.
After looking at it for a couple of hours I couldn’t resist
picking up my micron .03 and beginning ^. .^
We were a small but mighty group =) Janet with her two girls, Linda with her daughter and Bobbie all showed up to draw on a perfectly beautiful day. I will be posting more of their work as it comes in. I have been “drawn” to red umbrellas lately, hmmmmmm, not sure why buy I am enjoying them =)
Janet and her daughter with a wonderful drawing of one of the homes in Katonah.
More from the group soon =)
We just returned from Cape Cod. All the watercolors are from the cottage where we stayed. The pen and inks are from the National Seashore,
the cottage and some of our favorite places. I am always inspired by the sea and skies of the cape….the colors and light
Passing the time…waiting for the plane.
Love airports for sketching….nobody notices you =)

sketching out my back door..looking over the garden wall……
Quick pen and ink sketch of the town hall in Somers, NY. The statue is in honor of ol’ Bet, the first elephant to come to America and the beginning of the traveling circus.
