pano of the studio

This is a pano I pieced together. Wanted to get a shot of the studio for the beginning of the new year. any drawings in progress. Big drawings. Some are 32 x 44 and some are 22 x 32. Oh in inches.

I cleaned everything up after this shot and a series from the opposite direction. Three of the drawings are now finished. I have to manage putting some of the drawings in flat storage.

writing personal notes

Here's a shot of Margaret writing a note in the solstice cards. The drawing looked terrific. We were very pleased with the outcome. It's making me think about doing a series or two. These and the letterpress pieces could be great fun and hopefully fund the making of some more art.

Limited edition.

I've been working on our winter solstice cards for Stellarvisions. This is the first time in over a decade that the card will be art or a reproduction of art that I have made. This year the image will be from my cosmology series : cosmic strings. The actual small drawing is done in pencil. The reproduction is on a vellum sheet which is attached to the front of an 80# cream colored smooth sheet.

I finally have posted four pieces that were drawn during the summer. I was investigating making drawings with pencil and sitting down -- a very different experience for me in the studio.

welcome table

We had a well attended holiday show this year at sherman mills. The artists of b32 organized a sale and I'm happy to say that I unexpectedly sold one of my small plein air pieces. It was a north country drawing done up at the cabin in 2005. I enjoyed talking with the Ellen the buyer about my process and various works that I had hung for the occasion.

I was in the studio yesterday. Had a very productive first day of december. But, this is what it is like in Philadelphia today. This is a very good reason to be home blogging. I miss a fireplace. I've got some candles and incense burning to create an atmosphere that pushes away todays weather. I know that this is just the beginning. I'm looking for fluffy white stuff not pinging ice pellets.

I'm not exactly sure when november came but I know its almost gone. I'm in my studio today working on two big drawings. Each is two sheets of paper. Total size 44" x 30". These drawings are on a warm gray sheet and the first layer is graphite, pencil, stick, and powder.

It's a scale change that in turn changes the kind of marks that I can make. Change is always welcome.

My studio was neat and ready to go for the POST weekend. It poured for hours and hours on sunday.  I'm sure the rain reduced the number of visitors. Kelly drive was closed for a period of time due to flooding. On sunday it was crisp and clear. Turnout was better. More than 150 people visited my studio.
