7″ X 7″ colored pencil on Strathmore drawing bristol

Another in the Weekly Drawing series. Inspired by a visit to the Landscape Arboretum followed by wine-tasting at a nearby winery, which led to a strange urge to do a colored pencil rendering. Now I have that out of my system.


Studio Time

The most exhilarating way to spend an afternoon in the studio…..

1. Open a new carton of blank canvasses


2. Start painting!


“I don’t go to the studio with the idea of “saying” something.  What I do is face the blank canvas and put a few marks on it that start me on some sort of dialogue.”  Richard Diebenkorn

Let the dialogue begin.


Don’t you love it when your horoscope echoes your theory of making art?

SCORPIO: Oct. 25-Nov. 21: Motivated by curiosity, you’ll drive full speed ahead into a juicy mystery. CERTAINTY IS A DEAD-END ROAD. As long as you don’t know for sure, new possibilities will keep opening a path before you.
