thinking out loud

I set up my splash page and want to share it with you:

I've been trying to figure out a single source portal to send folks to more a bout me. I'm using Google+ but I thought I would try this a bit. I think it captures the right spirit. I'll be linking to all that is me from there.

A quick capture of my road kit.

I carry several sketchbooks. Three Molekines, one for ink drawings, a watercolor book, and a journal. Last but not least a Fabriano with multiple color sheets.

I like having the aqueous pencils on the road gives me lots of options. I can use one of my nifty Japanese nylon water color brushes to blend color or I can leave them alone.

This time along I brought a new India Ink brush marker. Love it. It helped me keep my little sketches very loose.

My plants were weeping when I arrived at my studio today. Four 90+ degree days called for more watering. I unloaded some supplies and drawings I had scanned last week. Then I began to get my road kit together.

I have a pretty serious kit for drawing in small sketchbooks along the beach or in the public places. I carry small Moleskines or spiral sketchbooks; they are best for unexpected bouts with nature. I can control them in the wind or cover them up from the rain. I have aqueous colored pencils, a squirt bottle, and  plastic Japanese brushes that have water wells built in.

I'm investigating some new things here at my blog.

Working on not being so image centric. I want to get in a place again where I write more about my process. It helps the visual side of my brain.

Please hang in there with me while I make some incremental changes. Let's see where this goes.

Sorting photos and came upon this one. Wearing shorts, nice. Right now wearing long johns.

Just thinking that I haven't done this in a while. I still remember how to I think. Heading to the studio Sunday to find out. Getting drawings for the 3rd Street Gallery Community Show together. Looking for something I have framed and ready to go. How much are three entries again?

I'll be letting you know what happens and if I am together enough to make the deadline.
