• Each peach, pear, plum

    I wish I had bought the peaches today, too.

  • Sugarplum tomatoes

    Greek salad tonight.

  • Underpass

    The Presidio is too beautiful. It’s intimidating, so I picked something ugly but interesting.

  • Two lemons

    Two lemons, on paper, on our butcher block counter.

  • Tree

    Another morning at Crissy field. I ditched the pen and tried to build the image using the crayons only.

  • Buena Vista

    Got a dispensation to leave the chaos of dinner-bath-and-bed and headed up to Buena Vista Park to draw the hill. It was a beautiful day in San Francisco today.

  • Napa Valley Spa

    Had a heavenly spa day for a friend’s engagement party. It was foggy in SF but beautiful and warm in Napa. It feels like summer is not quite over, yet.

  • Theo at work

    The likeness is terrible, but I am glad I got over my fear and just attempted to capture something of his intensity with playdoh. This seems like a fitting tribute to our first week alone together while his sister is at preschool.

  • Refrigerator door

    Collapsed in a chair after a long day and drew what I saw in front of me.

  • Alcatraz

    View from crissy field parking lot. I intended to add color at home, but have just wanted to leave it be.

  • Reaction

    This was a drawing done immediately after trying to draw the animals. My frustration was getting the best of me and I needed to stop worrying about how things looked. Constant interruption forced me into the adjacent room, standing up as I tried to build an image.

  • Drawing with children

    At safeway, I bought large, hideous-looking plastic animals for my 20 month old son, much to his delight. He kept moving them around the table as I tried to draw them….

  • First Post

    This is a drawing of a tree at Crissy Field (notice I misspelled it in my book.)

    This is also my first attempt at blogging!
