I try to make marks each day, in ink or watercolor or acrylic.

When something strikes me as interesting visually or grabs at my heart,
it often ends up in a sketchbook.
The difference is now I share them on a blog.

Sometimes a place or cause strikes my fancy.
I am placing these special causes, and my finished journal posts,
along with my formal portfolio links, under this page.
I sell originals, prints, and take commissions.
I also have a page for Challenges!

Hahnemuhle Nostalgie Journal 10/2017

This journal started in Diwali, and continued to just after the New Year.
I anticipated that it would be about light and ritual and women…
There was instead a good deal of unanticipated loss.
I withheld many pages from this public forum
(though I have no problem with friends flipping through my journals)
because I documented the struggle of personal losses and deaths.
My antidote, however, is to paint cheerful things.
That is the story my journal reveals.
Colorful items, beloved memories — a visual gratitude defying the
sadness and craziness of our country and the horror of the stories.
If I didn’t practice gratitude I do not know how I’d make it.
