Experience and Place

About six months ago I did something I have never done before. At least not without arm twisting and a grade attached. I started sketching out-of-doors regularly. I did this to explore a new medium and because my schedule is so chaotic I don’t have much time to work in the studio on mono-prints. The process also allowed me to develop work while I traveled.

I am almost finished with the first book. Which I am amazed to have achieved, it itself. And I am even enjoying the process and exploration, and the new medium.

Here is one of the sketches, made while I was teaching Quest, in Southern Utah.

I would love to know what you think. Send me a note.

  1. NICE!! Drawing and painting in plein air is one of the best things you can do for yourself as an artist.
