East street from NW Wilson by one block… flanked on both sides by homes similar to the ones on NW Wilson. Nice memories of buying Christmas trees for several years; no Christmas trees in June, so I took liberties with … Continue reading
In NW Portland there is an area we often drive through on our way to other places, and each time I think about what a sweet neighborhood this must have been before the area around it become warehouses… At some … Continue reading
Covid changed my journal use yet again. Between the pandemic, sequestration, and the Portland protests, I began to write pages in my sketching journal… because that is what I carry with me, and I felt like I was writing to … Continue reading
Above, I simple use a Pentel Aquash waterbrush filled with water, Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook to try inkpainting a peach. I am trying to get the hang of not always ending up with “blooms” or dark edges. I used a small … Continue reading
I don’t know what we’d do without the cats… Mitchell and I each bring different things to the play. I build forts; Mitchell does Willie Mays. Crinkly paper that comes in Chewy boxes, and the Give a Crap boxes, with … Continue reading
Annette Morris is leading our FB Virtual Sketchwalk group this month… This fiery image was a sunset and I wanted to play with inks over watercolor. Washes underneath were created quickly. Jinhao 750 with Robert Oster Glistening Orange Rumble ink … Continue reading
In my order I bought the Cassoulet Book; I love reading cook books for inspiration, and this one is inspiring. I doubt I ever make the Real Deal — not likely to buy duck and so forth. But I will … Continue reading
I’ve been a mostly one-journal gurl for awhile now, but with all the writing I am doing during this pandemic, I decided to go back to two journals. It is an attempt to save money — the Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook … Continue reading
A few years ago Tracey Fletcher King turned me onto Fineline Masking Fluid. I tried others and found them sticky and thick and messy; not what I wanted in the ways I wanted to use a masking fluid. Fineline’s masking … Continue reading
13. TAPE IS NOT A TOY We have resorted to putting it in small loops on a couple of things we absolutely cannot keep our willful, innocent-looking “kitten” from climbing. We tried squirting her with the water pistol. No deterrent. … Continue reading
This year the berries are big and still plentiful in August because of the mild summer we are having…. Heaven for us humans too, as August is usually a scorcher. Peeps who like the BIG perfect strawberries from California are … Continue reading
Every year I do a couple berry images… They are so so beautiful and tasty in the bowls! This year the berries are big and still plentiful in August because of the mild summer we are having…. Heaven for us … Continue reading
I returned my red Karas Kustom pen — I didn’t like the stub nib on their pen, and I love stubs so back it went. This is the new pen that Mitchell bought me to replace it. Edison Nouveau Tequila … Continue reading
I love the old buildings of Portland. I am sorry that the developers here do not have the ingenuity of the California developers, especially in the Bay Area or Cannery Row, where they saw how some of the history would … Continue reading
November 6 was a nail-biting day, and the day when I began my new Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook. Never have I seen our country so divided and uncaring about all of our inhabitants. The story of Maha-Durgha is the best one … Continue reading
Every other morning I cut fresh ginger for our coffee. The ginger is sliced as thin as I can slice it, a bit of a contest between me and myself. I used to break the “hand” into pieces, and slice … Continue reading
