50 pages of funny cartoons for your PNW friends that love to garden, but don’t love slugs…….
You can order from me directly. It iself-published, so might have one or two typing errors as I wrote the comments with one hand. Broke a finger on the left hand doing “Bootcamp”…
Decided to try using new water soluble pencils with pens in our drawing get together last night. The pens are SO unforgiving and after my last weekend my art confidence was at an new low. This is the only drawing that was even presentable
Next week I am back back to charcoal and will try new things in the privacy of my own studio.
Wonder if any of you have ever gone through a period where one or two people say something slightly degrading about your art and you believe them enough to let it set you back a year or two or day in your forward progress.
Teaching should (at any age) be a positive experience for the student and make them feel better about themselves. Share your opinion. What do you think?
When I taught interior design at The Art Institute of Seattle, we did a lot of sketching in our classes and I always thought it was important to say more good than bad about anyone’s work. I watched so many of my students grow in ability and confidence.
What a fun weekend taking a collage class with a lot of fun women. Never done any of this before and Kat DeBose was a great teacher. I used a lot of photos from my travels and decided rather than approach it as an art form to use it as a way to express satire.
Note in this one, the man is walking on water, or so he thinks and women enjoying their Ice Cream say to one another “Let him go”.
Tell me what you think of the idea! Might make a fun series of cards?

Time to think about the Holidays
After hiking up about 500 steps to the top of the hill I captured this photo view of the the beautiful town where we stayed for three days last summer.
Ah for the long and warm summer days. Fall is just cooling our evenings and crisping our mornings and I already long for the warmth of the summer sun.
Who ever thought a new idea would compel you want to sketch. It is such fun enjoying photos that easily translate into drawings.
Walking into Kingston today with best friends from San Diego we passed the trailer that inspired this painting. The photo was taken at 11 PM in December. I was mazed how many people were out and about at that time of night in Kingston in December.
My friend mentioned that she had never visited Seattle when it did not rain. It was warm and sunny until about 30 minutes later, when after a Latte we started our walk home, where we witnessed lightning, heard thunder and were drenched on the way home.
Be careful what you say in Washington….
Wish I could say I sat there and painted this, but someone in my painting group shared the photo and I thought it was lovely. Four of us painted the scene, each with a different result. It is 14 x 16 and available today for $450
