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.

Blooming Rhodies

I went out with my sketchbook yesterday on possibly the most beautiful day yet this year 
and found Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens are coming into peak bloom!
This was done from the parking lot...with an acrobatic hummingbird as company.
