Years ago, I had the notion that I would make a drawing of every author or poet I heard read, and make some sort of collection. That pledge went by the boards years ago, but I still enjoy drawing people at readings. Not even necessarily the reader. Also the people listening, if I can sit […]

I’ve set up a contribution page to help me deal with a big vet bill rescuing a sick orphan kitten. Link to page about Gaston the kitten. Or, is he now called “Jack Bauer?” Not something I’d normally do, but friends expressed interest in contributing when I told the story, so I thought I may […]
I hope this doesn’t make me seem too right wing. I was listening to the news on the radio this morning, just waking up, and this is what one item sounded like. To tell the truth, I support the protests!
Some more sketchbook items, digitally enhanced. I like the texture in the one above, which comes from the back of my work chair Nora the cat enjoys savaging. Textures make digital things more interesting. Above was drawn with a ball point pen. Below is from a photo of Yours Truly, with a black pencil. The […]
Well, these are fun to draw!
I have lots of little drawings but putting them all up in one post would be overkill. So today here are pages from my big, long sketchbook (well, 9″x12″ — but that’s pretty long). Usually when I scan something I slide a piece of blank paper underneath, but this time I wanted to see the […]
Been drawing a lot in pencil since I’ve started working on digital painting. Unfortunately, not much of the digital is ready for Prime Time (even here, where I often publish imperfect work!). But it is improving mightily, so I might be showing you some less than totally misbegotten images in the future. Part of the […]
Sketches done at the Hôtel Dieu Hospital, in the tiny waiting room in the endoscopy ward. My friend checked out OK, but it was a tough few hours waiting. Happyily, I had my book, (TOO MUCH HAPPINESS by Alice Munro), and my sketchbook. No one asked me what I was doing, thank goodness. Not all […]
This is true. But I am moved to put up some silly ballpoint pen and pencil drawings I’ve done. Enjoying the more complex scenes these days, and will do a few of these in colour, and digital, which I am fooling around with.
I enjoy painting these little pictures. May do some larger ones later, but don’t want to get all that complicated.
Did a watercolour for a Facebook friend, based on a picture of his he supplied me. Here’s the pic: And here’s the resulting painting: Fun to do! If anyone has a picture they’d like converted into a little watercolour (at reasonable rates — the one above was done in exchange for a favour), please contact […]
