Mushroom Trio

January 31, 2012




There was quite a glut of mushrooms on the forest floor this past fall; great fun to draw, with their myriad of phallic forms.  I really like how these three look together.

Sumi ink on paper, approximately 5×7 inches.  For sale at .


Cup of Tea

Having drawn with little other than ink for the past many years, I find these little pencil studies to be a refreshing change of pace.  I will post more soon.

Chair Series

January 21, 2012

This chair was a gift from my grandmother, who’s now 93 years old.  It had been hers since she was young and she still remembers sitting in it to do her schoolwork.  Each little drawing is done with a plain ol’ no.2 pencil on Strathmore paper.

Morandi Studies

January 20, 2012

I’ve recently become drawn to the paintings of the late, great Italian artist Giorgio Morandi.   “Copy” sounds plagaristic; “homage” has a nicer ring to it.  Either way, I hope to learn by way of imitation.  Each of these little studies is approximately 4×6 inches, done with cheap tempera paints on Strathmore drawing paper.
