Indeed – the return of the weekly sketch! I’ve been off-track for a few months now, but I’m back – doodling, cutting and pasting, and, most notably, painting. I have pulled out my crusty old watercolor set and am having a lot of fun re-exploring this medium. I like the drippy, spotty texture of watercolor, especially paired with straight, fine graphite lines. And hot damn, it feels good to be art-ing again.

Switchin’ it up – some plain old pencil on paper, since I recently rediscovered how much I like the tone and ‘smudginess’ of graphite. Also loving sticky-back printable transparencies – my new favorite way to incorporate my photos into my drawings.

Yes – after a multi-month hiatus, I’m back into the groove of my weekly sketches. Playing a lot with collages, spending my evenings with magazine clippings and a bottle of Elmer’s. It’s fun.

I’ve been spending a lot of time flipping through furniture catalogs lately, tempting myself with plenty of stuff that we really don’t need. So rather than buy the items on those dog-eared pages…Voila.
I’m taking a break from the weekly sketches for the next few weeks, but only so that I can focus on some other art projects. So stay tuned!
