At home, looking at old sketches :)

March 28, 2020

It’s always a pleasant surprise when you’re sorting out some papers, and a couple nice sketches fall out.

These are from South Carolina. We had a wonderful visit a while back, teaching a workshop and jurying a watercolor show.

Right now, during the self-quarantine, the old life of travel and painting with friends seems like such a luxury. I’m sure I didn’t appreciate it enough at the time.

I hope everyone is taking things easy, staying in the moment, not worrying about the unknown future.

And of course, painting at home ;)

Take care everyone!

    you are such a ‘caring for others’ type of man…you take care of yourself and your family.

    My aunt used to say when things seemed impossible “This too shall pass”.

    There will be a new normal and a new appreciation for being out in the world….maybe as human beings we take things for granted.

    Very few of us can feel that blase again.

    Stay healthy …

    Viewing your peaceful painting of nature, calmed me down after a stressful market run. Yes, I am using sketching at home mostly curbside flowers–they are in full bloom right now– to soothe my spirit and focus my attention on nature’s beauty. Thank you & Stay well!
