My sketchbooks are a place of pure play for me. Sketching is a way to experience where I am, a way of relating to where I live, what I’m doing, and where I’m going. With a sketchbook available, I always have entertainment – sketching people while waiting in line at Costco or the back of a pickup truck when stuck in traffic.

My sketchbox has traveled to Japan, Central America and Europe, and I can look at these and I’m immediately drawn back to what it was like to be there. I can remember exactly what was going on around me, even though it was years ago.

Back to Pastels! Fruits and Vegetables for "A Matter of Taste"

 Getting back into pastels was fun and satisfying after being away form them for a couple of years.
Like playing with a box of jewels.... These were done on Canson La Carte salmon colored paper, my favorite surface.
These new pieces will be in the Brackenwood Gallery's May show,  "A Matter of Taste"
