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.

Island Summer

 Summer is so beautiful in the Northwest, and it goes by so quickly.  Here is a quick post....!

A friend's garden near where we live. I was using my new Kuretake sable brush pen with the usual Lamy. Much experimenting ahead with this new tool!

Early morning on a San Juan Island family camping trip looking west toward Victoria, BC.
On the left is my sketch of the morning light, on the right, a cooperative by my grandsons age 2 and 4. 
All on their own....sharing my sketchbox. I will restock the ultamarine blue.  Excitement and freedom of color! I like theirs best!
