I am in a creative slump. I’ve been in this stuck place for weeks and pushed myself to sketch posies — which usually works — but nothing is working. Painting these flowers has been like slogging through mud. I told … Continue reading
#Notinktober is over… But I am not over with inks! I was waylaid by two things: work, and a project that I want to finish and knowing how things go I thought I best get going early. Today I am … Continue reading
I have a few sketches of her passing in my journal. I was a fan long before, and if you haven’t read her biography, it is a great read. She was what we need right now… NOT Amy. I love … Continue reading
Art in Sydney Image for reference by Debi Taylor, shown bottom. Started with a line drawing, as always. This artwork was frightening in its twisting complexity: I almost gave up many times… but then there is that half-finished drawing in … Continue reading

We watched the movie The Booksellers and it was so good…. I want to step back in time to a different place where things were slower and instant gratification was not the high point of everyone’s life. So many great … Continue reading

The Durgha Festival is on, Navratri, and ten nights of a celebration of the many faces of the goddess is in full swing. Lamy Al-Star with Robert Oster Opal Green ink. She sits on my desk, a reminder of strong … Continue reading
We spent a weekend cooking for ourselves… WE both have arthritis and need things that work for us, and many “gluten-free” items are made with potato flour, because cooks think that doesn’t bother people — but that is also a … Continue reading
This will be a word I contemplate every day for the next year… After 40+ years at this Buddhist thang I should be able to find peace and joy in the midst of even the worst situation, which we are … Continue reading
The Sydney Opera House. Image for reference by Debi Taylor. Started with a line drawing, as always. This building is so complicated I cannot image trying it without guidelines. Jørn Oberg Utzon, AC, Hon. FAIA (Danish: [ˈjɶɐ̯ˀn ˈutsʌn]; 9 April 1918 – … Continue reading
The Sydney Opera House. This was a wild toad ride. I was going along nicely, enjoying the markmaking in the middle of the night, when I reached for a waterbrush and had not closed the top tight and a huge … Continue reading
No, not the twelve step kind… Needing to recover after work weeks of complete crazy.. A prompt circulating to day is “disgusting”. I see Trump in the feeds more than any other item. But you know, even the tag I … Continue reading
Pure color. Not easy to do a wash in inks (or watercolor, but I find the latter easier). I think it is because you are adding a bit of water in the waterbrush, and the ink doesn’t really want to … Continue reading
I messed the proportions on this one totally Ah well… The Opera House. Image for reference by Debi Taylor. To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or check out my new, improved dkatiepowellart.com “Memory is more indelible than ink.” … Continue reading
