A selection of drawings in my 365.2019 project.
It's great to be going through my drawers and flat files to find scraps of unused paper to make these drawings. There are plenty more coming. Enjoy this small grouping. Each drawing is a wnderful discovery.
Now it's time to cut down some more 4 x 4 inch squares.

Our closing party is coming up.
Artists Stella Untalan and Robert McNellis present work that reveals and revels in overlapping. They were startled by the parallel nature of the work, resulting from completely different media and processes.

I had a whole plan for a 365 project. It went to hell.
It seems that these small drawings have started to pour out. So I ave changed the project to small drawings on 4 x 4 inch squares of scrap paper bits tht ave been lying iin my flat files for soe time. They are happy to be used.
I've also pulled out pens, pencils, crayons, and markers. Some little nubs of things too.
I'm learning something new each time I make a new drawing. I'm interested in making some larger pieces that use the marks and process I've used for the smaller pieces.

Freezing temps mean keep drawing were it is warm. I've been getting my drawing muscles worked out. I'm having to work with the gear in my drawing travel bag; that's a challenge. I've been drawing with acrylic markers and ink. Now I'm drawing with watercolor and pencils.
Testing these materials for my 365 project. Join my mailing list to get updates by email.

The new year has brought me back to drawing with pencils again. It has started with my small travel kit that I often use at coffee shops and cafes.
The small drawings currently combine paint markers and pencils. These are experiments for what will be larger drawings in the near future.
i’m happy to be drawing again. It was difficult to do much in November and December.

I've begun working on a plan for my 365/2019
I'll begin making drawings in February. This is my sketchbook where I started setting the perameters.
I expect to create my grids this weekend so I can test some of te systems I'll ned to keep the drawings centered and keep to the process.
Looking forward to sharing more as soon as I cam.

Eight hours driving to get to the cabin and drawing paradise.
Happy to settle in with my art go bag and make drawings with a hot cup of Joe beside me. I made a few drawings and used my sketchbook to get some impressions recorded for making more formal drawings back in the studio.
This is time I use without the intrusion of the net and social networks. No electricity. Just grilling, nature and drawing.
In the photo Inktense pencils, watercolor sketchbook, brush pens and The New York Times.

I was happy to partiicipate in the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours again in 2018. I had many wonderful, thoughtful visitors. I had a large selection of new drawings.
I'm currently assessing participating again in 2019. More likely than not. Its always good to meet new folks and talk with fellow artists.

Working on a new large drawing. I’m a bit further along than when I snapped this process image.
This panel has a sheet of Stonehenge mounted on it. The wash is made with a vinyl paint and the dots are acrylic ink made with a syringe. I expect to have the dots completed in my next visit. Then I will determine whether other marks are needed.

Sketchbooks at the ready.
A lovely Red Pine pine cone. So few of them these days it seems. I love their blueish bark.
I'm making drawings influenced by my mountain retreat. This pine cone will work iits way into the drawings.
