Two pictures of Mitchell in his twenties made for good practice. One of him looking out over the Sierras… Another of him hamming for the camera (he didn’t smoke.) I am working in the Hahnemühle Cappuccino Sketchbook … dedicating it … Continue reading
Happy Happy Birthday to the best Loverman in the World! (I am getting better at sketching my husband’s face… these are throwbacks to other days.) To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or check out my new, improved dkatiepowellart.com … Continue reading
Picking up an old Fabriano Watercolor journal that I really don’t like *but will finish off in some way, like the 100 faces challenge* I came across an old drawing of the building in the Pearl that originally housed Cargo, … Continue reading
How lovely that the prompt for our anniversary is “Something Sweet”! I sketched both my husband Mitchell’s sweet face and the truffles we shared for our anniversary! You never know when the best thing in the world is going to … Continue reading
That’s a winner… Mitchell! Okay I thought I’d do the 100-faces-in-a-week. I’m not terrible with faces, I just am not too interested in drawing them. So here is one day of that, and no more. Can’t do challenges just because … Continue reading
Mitchell took me to see his Moreton Bay Fig in Santa Paula. I understand that. I have relationships with trees too, and this one is amazing. It was planted in 1879 — and yes, it is famous — and grows … Continue reading
Mitchell’s mom ran the Chili Hut in Santa Paula… When I sketched the building where it was I put a couple of women in dresses as they might have been then and used a 50’s style car (made up of … Continue reading
Mitchell Boy Train Yogananda Destiny. All in the color orange…. Cherished Blogfest Starts today! July 29, 30, 31! Tell us about a cherished object: post a painting / drawing / photo, and in 500 words or less, tell us why … Continue reading
All these images are sketched in the Bright Ideas journal. I can’t stop loving this crazy colored journal! I spent time color mixing this week… fewer Bright Ideas… But I did realize what this book is all about, and it … Continue reading
Merry Christmas, Happy Santa Day, Happy Hanukkah (passed but we have our Stars of David on our tree), and all the other holidays! Looking toward the light in our physical, personal, and national arenas! The folding journal, ready for words … Continue reading
Our business gets us in the back door to some amazing places. We conserved the Gothic Sofa for the Hearst Castle, near Cambria, California. We visited just before Christmas to see it installed in William Randolph Hearst’s private library (between … Continue reading
Puja’s on the Solstice. One of our winter traditions. When we are where we can’t make a fire in the brazier we find other ways to “make” a fire! Part of my holiday memory gift to Mitchell this year, I … Continue reading
The tassel man. Seriously, the differences between my sweetie and I in terms of decor is that I am a modernist and my man loves rich tapestries, textures, passementerie and tassels. I gave him a set of Indian red beaded … Continue reading
Departing from Restore Oregon to play in the season (and get some paying work done), I did a couple sketches of Mitchell and I from a time where we were having a hard time (many losses) but somehow, we always … Continue reading
In all this waiting-for-kidney-stone maladies to heal (the surgeon tore my ureter) I have been creating a healing journal. I’m not sure I can share it in its entirety, but will at some point share within my comfort zone. It … Continue reading
