Happy March! My brain is already running crazy with the recent test results from our two dogs. I’m getting ahead of myself… let’s step backwards to the cow completion: Here she is complete with a pink tongue sticking out. The stand is cedar with a round of gold leaf. Cow is 94% Oregon wool, 4.5%Continue reading “Completed Cow and Genetic Dogs”

Moby Head Completed!
As I mentioned before, somewhere during this blogging experience, process is what drives me forward with any project. I find it amazing that laying down line after line, one can create an image that seems to work. Above is the full slideshow of Moby’s head from start to finish. Not all of my photos areContinue reading “Moby Head Completed!”
Isn’t He Done Yet?
Why do I keep picking at this image? It keeps festering on the drawingboard, receiving more marks in different areas, resolving questionable zones. I think I’m finally satisfied enough with his nose and the pencil is moving down into the muzzle zone. His chin hair is crazy! Do I really try to capture it orContinue reading “Isn’t He Done Yet?”
A bit more work today on my crazy boy. Moby is slowly emerging from his favorite blue chair. I don’t think I’ll add color to him directly, just the blue chair and shadow. I’ll have to wrap him up by Friday so other projects can get underway. Graphite pencil and watercolor
Starting the final book
Finally, it’s started!! The drawing has quite a ways to go, but at least the pencil has hit the page. This drawing is part of the final book started by my art friend Cathe Jacobi. The book as made it around the world and has been resting on my desk for well over 1.5 years.Continue reading “Starting the final book”
Moby Forest continues…
Isn’t it done YET??? Oh my goodness!!! I’m just furious with myself for not getting things moving and out the door! What the heck is wrong with me??? I guess life keeps rearing up and stalling progress forward. The next book is on it’s way… So, what’s been happening? Well, more coastal stuff, trying toContinue reading “Moby Forest continues…”
Far Right Panel Idea: I’m pushing myself forward as the new week approaches. Sunday afternoon I sat down and did a quick and inaccurate cut of a barn, fields, and Mary’s Peak in the background. I didn’t even really think about all the perspective lines and where the true horizon line should be located. I’llContinue reading “Onward!”
With the early morning temperatures reaching down to the mid-20’s, daily chores start outside. It’s not like we have a farm, but we do aid the wildbird population by providing water and food stations. The birdbaths are frozen and get a quick dumping of the ice and addition of quarts of warmish water. The hummingbirdContinue reading “Thanksgiving Warming”
Frost. There is always something special about the first (or the second) frost of the season. It pushes the fact that yes, the seasons are changing. Of course, we would have missed this beautiful experience if the Mexico Thanksgiving holiday had gone through. So far the weather forecast is rain on Monday, shifting to freezing tempsContinue reading “Second Frost”
Is it really mid-November?
I’m rather puzzled as to how we’re now at mid-month and I don’t know where time has gone. Ok, I did spend several days doing inventory/banking/clean-up after Open Studio. Then I went to the coast for 5 days with the dog. Last week was all about trying to train the dog for our next adventure.Continue reading “Is it really mid-November?”
