Recent work

 I have been busy actually working with other artist this week.  It seems we all have cabin fever, spring fever all in one week.  That has been our weather.  One day snow almost 5inches and 2 days later spring like temps in the 50's.  We certainly do get a mixed bag of weather conditions on Long Island.

These are some of the work I have been doing.  Of course Millers Pond in the sepia ink was lots of fun, but I even managed a little girls sketch in sepia.
Happy painting and sketching everyone.

Doodles with my Noodler Pen

Today I loved working my Noodler Ahab pen, using the Noodlers brown ink.  The last was ink and a watercolor wash.

Pen and Ink still life

This morning sketches, actually the first was a happy little accident.  The waterbrush spilled to much water.  Love the effect so left it alone.

The Larger study is from a photo I had taken years ago.

Todays Journaling

Today I went to the Bayshore Library, there was a watercolor workshop and the first sketch is of my friends painting the still life set up.  This morning my day was started sketching in my moleskine.  I sketched my two Noodler pens, waterbrush and pencil case.

Todays Journaling

Little Church Sayville Grange Park
Garage Finds  daily journal
Don't know what I am doing, can't seem to get the words in the correct place.  The top is a quick sketch done on location at The Grange Park in Sayville. The second is what I worked on this morning.  Things that were purchased at garage sales in the 90's.  The lower is my mini paints on the hood of my car. With the little sketch.  I will probably do more work from my digital photo.

Pen and Ink study

Places on Long Island  during the summer with PALS, a plein air group that paints together. 

New Year and my daily journal

I am so new to this daily journaling. After being so inspired by Cathy Johnson and Urben sketches, decided to start another blog. So today will be the start of hopefully a new adventure.

Happy Sketching everyone.
