  • Alley

    This began as a drawing of the alley between our house and the house next door, as seen from the window in my daughter’s room…but then it sort of morphed into something else. I like the moments when the drawing stands up and demands that you head a different direction from the intended one…

    Again using the Aquastic crayons.

  • Lemon


    New materials arrived today. Cretacolor Aquastic–they are good-quality water soluble oil pastels. They come in the width of the aquarelle crayons, so it’s easier to feel a sense of control. I got a pack of 20 and at $20 on sale at Jerry’s Artarama, I think it’s a good investment!

  • Working it out

    I am meditating on “glance” a painting I made over the weekend. The rectangle in it seems unintegrated, but it felt right at the time, and somehow still does. I am trying to figure out if this is stubborness on my part, or is something else going on? Or is this just a painting that’s meant to lead me other places? I sort of love “glance” despite all its problems. I am walking around humming the theme song to Close Encounters of The Third Kind–doo, doo ,doo, doo dooooooo. Why do I keep returning to the mountain and the rectangle?

    This playground is perched up on a cliff in Diamond Heights. It was a beautiful day today.

  • Saturday’s drawing

    Went to a local community production of Death of A Salesman–it was wonderful! I drew (quickly)as we waited for the performance to begin.

  • From "Glance"


    I had a teacher in art school who always made us draw from our paintings. This was made after completing the above painting. Again, it was a good exercise in forward and back…each informs the other. And it’s nice for me to take the pressure off of the daily sketch being a completed work–it’s just another visual attempt to get at something else…

  • Tunnel revisited

    This is yesterday’s composition, altered. I am thinking about the large white rectangle of canvas I have in the basement, and what I want to do on it (to it)?
