This week I began a series of purple drawings using Montana Markers and Acrylic ink on Yupo. They are small drawings and they feel like phrases. 

Working with the marker to see how it reacts to be dragged in different ways. Lots of exploration.

Just begining some protypes; basically color tests for my next commission. Color pallette selected. Working on the vocabulary of marks.

This going to be another large drawing so I'm testing the color interaction and marks. Excited to get started. The end piece will be almost square.

Just before POST I installed a new shelf over one of my workbench. I have two lights to suspend from the bottom to better light the area. This will be great with the winter coming on and it getting dark so early.

It's a great finishing space. Smooth clean hard surface.

Above I will be able to display some interesting objects.

I'm really excited to share this exhibition that is currently at @HBHQ. Really thrilled to be showing my work with Margareta. Her work is brilliant. I hope you get a chance to see our little show.

Three of my Egyptian Waters drawings. Looking at some minor moisture damage. I have to test a blank sheet to see if I can make a repair. I want to get these framed for an upcoming show. Only a little wrinkle.

A gift to me. Sad that my favorite art supply store is gone.

For my most recent exchibition I created a series of drawings that are driven not by results but by process. Each of these drawings is made using the same ink, the same pen, the same unrelenting process. The results reveal themselves to be reminders of her meandering walks and joyful runs in the woods. The straight trunks making blurred lines that suggest motion, space, and time — a DNA image of being in the woods.
