 do you ever

take pencil to paper and see where it leads you?

then sit back and take it to heart 


interpret how it moves you?


prepare a meal and plate it up

then sit back and take it to heart and see how it moves you?

or watch the wind inspire the trees to dance 

and interpret some special meaning for you or about life?

I enjoy doing this. 

it is a bit like drawing a card for its message. 

This young lad closed his eyes and settled within,

energy centers tangibly gained vibrance.

I hope to sketch more often

even daily, just for fun, just to see what shows up on the page. 

Then to consider its meaning for me. 

Does this drawing have a personal meaning for you?

Landscape Art


I ended and began the year with little landscape art.

They were both done in art journals.

Amazing how long the pencil one above took. 

I had not played with pencils for a long time and found it relaxing and fun to choose colors.

This was painted in a Hahnemuhle 100% cotton watercolor journal. 

I enjoyed working on the paper. These journals are new to the market. 

The best part of each of these landscapes, besides the act of making them, is that I would enjoy wandering into both of them to explore and enjoy.

On New years day I was out feeding the birds. 
They land on a tree near me, chirp when they want nuts, I hold out my hand for them to land
and take a nut/seed away. 

There was another high pitched sound, I looked down to see this little ermine completely curious about me. 
It ran from hole to hole popping its head out to look at me. 
What an exciting experience. 

Happy 2023 to each of you!
