You might remember the sketch I did of this door and “blue” tiles at a home the other day >> It wasn’t the first time I’d drawn the house. I’m drawn to it: it is close to the studio, the … Continue reading
I took a moment yesterday late to draw the door itself in this beautiful building that reminds me so of the Brentwood area of Southern California. I am finishing up images of this building that I will post later, but … Continue reading
To me this is a compelling street scene because of the line of doors…. Update: Murilo S Romeiro took the image of Tiradentes, a small town in Minas Gerais, Brazil. For Thursday Doors, Norm’s blog round robin open to anyone! … Continue reading
Thurman Street is a nice “hike” up into the West Hills. Mitchell and I have been searching for good doors, and I have to say, Great houses but such mediocre doors as to be boring! However, many wealthy people who … Continue reading
26th Avenue, two doors within throwing distance of our studio. Above, on the historic American Canning Company, which then became the Multnomah County Medical Examiners offices (and then, how apropos) became the door to Grimm’s studio costuming annex. (Sitting across … Continue reading
Okay, I had to pull up an old sketch for Thursday Doors! A wonky urban sketch of the side doors, which is nicer than the front doors, of the Monastery of the Precious Blood in the Mount Tabor neighborhood of … Continue reading

My sketch, above of the unpainted and beautiful doors in the Doe Library. The Doe Library in Berkeley still has the solid redwood doors, covered in thick hides with brass details. We were hired to assess the doors, and explain … Continue reading
There is this amazing rusty metal door going into the art gallery on Raleigh. It is a wild thing, all twisted and colorful and rough and organic. I did my best; but gads, what a door. It pops out of … Continue reading
We see these sweet homes on the way to our vets, and on walks. They are no where near special enough to be saved when the bulldozers come, which they will because way laid back Portlandiars won’t fight to save … Continue reading
Trinity Episcopal Church, at the corner of 19th and Everett, across from where the NW Outdoor Market is often held. I rarely see it like the image right (Wiki) — trees obscure the lovely old building except when it … Continue reading
Had little time to sketchcrawl last weekend, but found a great corner near us in NW. Around the corner from the main Pro Photo shop on 19th is the new-old building, where they’ve taken a dull green-grey corner at 18th … Continue reading
