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.

Sketching in Mexico!

Two weeks of playing, sketching and swimming, near Manzanillo, Mexico. Of course, some eating
and margaritas too. How to sketch such a beautiful light infused place, sometimes it was just drops of color.
                  I often woke up early to see the sun explode over the mountains and Santiago Bay.

                            Surrounded by water and ever changing light. Never the same twice!

Morning view from my bedroom patio. 

Bougainvillea of every color, play with color!

                                        Just above us, the pool and palapa of Casa Maya

 Beach day at El Oasis across the bay.
