This little pen changed everything. Vintage Pelikan P20 Twist Fountain Pen (while they are still available) with its soluble black ink and a nib that slides on the paper (for about $10) is such a joy! I use the empty … Continue reading

Sitting in brown skies is getting to me… Had to stop drawing fires skies and move to posies… They lift the spirit to doodle them… Making my own field up, flowers that won’t grow together and oh they make … Continue reading
There is not a lot to say… You’d have to have been in a coma not to know what is going on as Oregon has made world news for months, and now it is all about the fires. The skies … Continue reading
I follow @maranierae (you should too) on Instagram, and her posts on the Rochester protests compelled me to see the Daniel Prude video for myself. I wept. I was sorry I’d watched it before bed… but if I am horrified … Continue reading
I also listened to speeches given by various BLM activists. None call for violence, and in fact call for passive resistance, staying together, and what to do when the PPB arrests you in violation of your right to free speech … Continue reading

I love inkpainting, but I’ve been stalled a bit on my own growth as a watercolorist… I am actually a bit bored. Not that I am very very good — but I have a handle on watercolors after playing with … Continue reading
What do you do with a really bad drawing in your nice new art journal? I started this on a day of talking and talking and a little sketching with an art friend. We went to the Pittock Mansion to … Continue reading
Tried a new way to sketch on site. I had several TWSBIs with me, and sketched the Williamette River view from our client’s home while Mitchell talked to her about her furniture. After we left, I used a waterbrush to … Continue reading
Every time I am sitting under the 405 freeway waiting to pick up Mitchell at UHaul, I think about trying to sketch the freeway overhead. ARGH! Not easy… So my first page was the drawing above… I usually sit facing … Continue reading
After acupuncture, we walked to Hem 23 for a great Vietnamese meal. We ordered way to much food for the table — I had no idea! To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or check out my new, improved … 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
I’ve been getting my pens in shape for Inktober. I had received a Goulet nib in the mail and was out sketching the water tower in NE Portland… The dang Conklin nib is sooooo awful, I switched it between sketches. … Continue reading
