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…:)

Two big boxes came today from California with mostly my quilts from the “Art Laundry” show…but also the work on paper.  Here are three that are colored pencil and china marker on gesso bases on handmade paper…

"Adjust the Tension"

"Apotheosis of Plaid"

"Less Than Total Eclipse"

Well I finished my most recent little narrative for the Sketchbook Project and I’ll send it off tomorrow.  This one is about my current “situation”…recovery from ankle fusion surgery…and I doubt it was my most INSPIRED offering (was it the drugs??), except for the cover…but here it is…in case you can’t get down to Brooklyn to take a look…
