A prayer for the Feminine, above, from ancient symbols. It is easy to point fingers at the other guys, especially when their hatred fills the airwaves. My encounter yesterday with a female peace activist out of the box immediately, screaming … Continue reading
Our tree is eclectic, having a history of Jewish Buddhist Catholic Vedic ornaments, and a serious Santa Claus ornament collection. This year we are opting for restive… Family out of town, we are frankly exhausted, and so, ordered in, a … Continue reading
An unexpected bit of joy on a tough day. 99% ink, and done in about five minutes (but ink dried between splashes while I was packing for a business trip.) Roy DeLeon posted this little challenge on FB: 1. Copy … Continue reading
Pentalic replaced this falling apart journal, and I am trying to get through it because it continues to break open at new places. I want the new year to be free of breaking journals! Middle of the night QUICK sketches… … Continue reading
Why do I associate flamingos with home? NO flamingos in Laguna Beach nor Lalaland, though there is a healthy respect for trailer kitsch. Today I am filled with gratitude for my art friends, especially my favoritest aussie gurl! I have … Continue reading

Musings today. And continuing to finish off this breaking apart Pentalic! Being a student in a great architectural school prior to the advent of CAD, and exposed to some amazing and innovative thinkers was a huge gift. Los Angeles was … Continue reading
Finally I’m hopeful that I will get the PT necessary to put my back together the way it was before the terrible terrible Dr. Im (Kaiser Permanente) cut my ureter in a routine kidney stone procedure and laid me out … Continue reading
Brave, definitely squirrelly behavior stealing and running madly for his life! Dan Antion caught him in action! Inked the sketch, masked areas, laid down grisaille, added various other inks, and then watercolors. ☾ Pentalic Aqua Journal, with a Pentalic 2B … Continue reading
Dan Antion provided a compelling image for middle of the night insomnia painting. I love his peeking-at-you sheep. Next to the bed, I had two mark-making items and frankly it was pretty cold, and I didn’t want to get out … Continue reading
Okay, not Cheryl‘s pet turtles but she fed them and they recognized a kindred spirit! Inked (with a healthy splat) then painted with grisaille, followed by watercolors. ☾ Pentalic Aqua Journal, with a Pentalic 2B woodless pencil, Fineline Masking Fluid, … Continue reading
Shared the before picture of Sammy on Karla’s chair yesterday… We (MPF Conservation) took the lovely old chair apart, repaired the frame joints, rebuilt the innards using the original parts, and reupholstered it in the loveliest fabric. Sammy was not … Continue reading
Sammy is allowed to curl into the chairs from cat lovers before we begin restoration (with permission from cat-loving clients). They travel back and forth from home to studio depending upon what is in the studio. This is Karla’s before … Continue reading

NOTE: This is about my preferences and why. Other artists will have other preferences, so reading what they like and what they say about this or that journal is good. The only negatives I will write are very bad experiences…. … Continue reading
An image from the Virtual Sketchwalk group (gads I cannot remember whose someone remind me and I will correct) done in mostly ink. I tried to work wet-on-wet with the inks, so they moved a bit… I pulled the inks … Continue reading
