Four views

These may have been planning drawings for scratchboard, but I don't think I ever did them in scratchboard. I love painting with ink on mat board, the way it soaks in and gives such a satisfying black.

Better Late Than Never

I neglected my posting last night after partying with old friends, but it's still technically Friday, so I'll post old favorite, my Planet Dancers print.

I can't help but fall back on my beginnings in fashion design, especially since lately I've been thinking of outfits to make for myself. Not necessarily mu'umu'u, but what we call Aloha wear.

Slippers and Fruit

I love slippers. I love to draw slippers. I don't know why the fruits are there.


My sweet Marie in her natural black and how she would look in white. She was the most beautiful cat, though few people saw her - she would hide under the bed and only come out if everyone sat very still.

A reclining of my favorite themes. This was done sometime in 2005.

Praying Girl

I have no idea when or why I did this sketch. The only date I could find in the sketchbook was 1994, so I'm pretty sure this is at least 10 years old.

Spiral Planets

This is scratchboard - I used to do a lot of it because I could work very small and in great detail. While organizing my art supplies, I found a nice big piece of scratchboard, so I plan to start doing them again.

Check in hand?

I found this in an old notebook...maybe it was a sketch for an icon or something? There were other variations on the page, but I liked this one best. I often sketch in pencil, and then, years later, go through the sketchbooks and go over the ones I like in pen. Not usually red pen; I must have been in a mood.


I am going to make a serious effort to post a sketch every day, even if it's just a doodle. If I don't draw anything that day, I will post scans of some of my old stuff.
Today I started to draw some poppy pods, but I got interrupted, and this is where I stopped. I thought they looked like they were dancing.
This is more for my own amusement and discipline than anything else, but I appreciate all comments so I don't feel like I'm sending this out blindly into the blogosphere.

My sister asked me to make a little cup and saucer for her friend Jim. This one will also fit on a dime...I made a little origami box for it, the box is 1 inch square.
