I have been busy getting this year’s Christmas card ready for mailing. I've been making my own cards since my children were very young. I'll post this year's card after it goes out in the mail, but in the meantime, here are some of my favorites from
Now I struggle most years to come up with an idea for the card, but when my children were young it was almost too easy. My all time favorite was the very first one I put the children in. I like it because I managed to capture a little of their personalities
Here are a couple more from those early years. Christmas has always had a magical quality for me, and I tried to capture that in my cards.
No more little kids, but I’m kind of proud of last year’s card. It’s just the two of us enjoying still being together and it's still magical.
Some of the best work I've done isn't hanging on a wall; it's sitting in a box in my closet that's full of my old sketch books. I fill up one or two books each year. Some of the sketches end up as a basis of a more formal work, but most don't. They’re more important to me as a pictorial diary and also as on-going training; learning to really see and to understand shape, light and color.
This blog is to share my sketches as well as my sketching experiences.
