Leafy Forest

On a recent walk, I picked up a few beech leaves and tucked them into my sketchbook. I discovered them over the weekend when I was away visiting my mother-in-law. I only had a full pencil case for a studio. So, after making coffee, I set to work making rubbings of the leaves and creating little magical forests out of them. Maybe there's a story in here somewhere.

Silent Forest

Most of the city was long gone. Remnants were sought out and verified by the seekers. Secrets never leave the forest. It's a good place to go if you want to have a really important conversation.

Profligacy

I try to finish every painting I start. Some are less conclusive than others. They may suggest some idea that I'm not ready to recognize yet. Or, more likely, they are overworked and the good bits have been muffled in the clash of my mixed priorities. Such is the process of making pictures all the time. I am so fortunate to squander so freely!  Here are few outtakes that have some buried possibilities. Maybe.

Crystal Cities 2014-2017 book for sale

I have designed and self-published a second collection of Crystal Cities drawings made between 2014 to today. It's available here. This paperback tome is 176 pages, full color printing on nice paper. A few poetic essays are scattered about to distract the reader. The cost is $35.00 US and it's worth every penny.
