Taken a some time ago, my daughter and I posing on a pier that became one of our favorite places to walk. I know I’ve this said before, but I really like the rustic look of this place.
I’d also like to wish a Happy Easter to those who celebrate it, and to those who do not, it is really a time of rejuvenation.

Sketching passerbys from a picture window at Starbucks in center city. I’d forgotten how crazy people could be when given a reason. I saw someone literally lying in he gutter.

Yes I’m still alive should anyone have wondered why I hadn’t posted for so long. I may have mentioned, I’ve always been a people watcher as long as I can remember. So it was a natural evolution to sketch people in their surroundings. Lately I’ve had more of an opportunity to draw people from life.
I only really began drawing people in their surroundings, not posing in a room full of people to draw or paint since graduating from Art Center College. I found I prefer it. Although I should say drawing from a posing model, clothed and unclothed, was a valuable ingredient in my education.
Since cafe sketching, I’ve had some interesting communication with people who were hyper aware. But mostly it’s an art of “taking a mental snapshot”, as was the case of the sketch of the intense gentleman above and the subject was none the wiser.

I want to thank friends of Allen’s Zoo as we approach the end of the year, the response to my work still amazes me. I also would like to wish everyone a very happy New Year and albeit a belated Merry Christmas. The holidays arrived before I knew it.
