Time to return to reality after family, fun, rest…but maybe I’ll just post my holiday musings, drawing wise, for the record…

Last Saturday Salem Sketchers met at Archive coffee for an hour of drawing…easy for me because I’ve been drawing my coffee for YEARS!!

I’ve had fun with Sketchbook.com over the last several years, but it has run it’s course for me I think.  Here is the last of the “Map of the Table” books…sent off last week…hope somebody looks at it on tour this summer…I carried this one around so long the duct-tape cover looks pretty scruffy…so be it…

Even though I put this on my other blog, I thought I’d add it here…since, really, THIS is our drawing blog…here’s my most recent sketchbook project book I’ve sent off to the Brooklyn Art Library.  It can be looked at there, and I THINK goes on tour this summer, hopefully coming to Portland so I can revisit it….this was a fun one…it was such a natural I’ve started Map of the Table II…this book I’ll keep though…:)

How, we’re off to the beach where maybe the sun will shine…but otherwise the scene will be like this drawing of a few years ago…me wrapped up, seeing myself in the mirror…eek…don’t think I’ll need my sunglasses today.  Here in the valley it’s cold and gray today…thinking of Hawaiian beaches…xxoo
