Drawn Out: at the Met

What a fun time I had drawing at the Met. I wandered amongst the sculptures, from African wood to Italian ceramic. Light, shadow, form! Each took about 25 minutes. I am always amazed that only 20 minutes in to drawing something do really begin to see it! That's what is so useful about drawing: it is really about seeing.

See you in the galleries,

Out with a Fox

If being an artist is all about making things and saying, "Look what I made!", then, "Look what I made: a fox!"

This is my first real attempt at a stuffed animal. It took me most of January, working in my spare time. Thanks to Miriam, Grace, and Isabel for their stitching advice! No sooner was he finished than we had a beautiful, wet snow, and being new to the world, the fox wanted to get out and have a look.

See you in the hedges,

Send a Nice-O-Gram

Hi folks,

This Valentine's Day I'm with Cupid, 'cause I teamed up with children's book store Books of Wonder, and for a limited time only (see link for details) you can send a Nice-O-Gram to someone you love. "What is a Nice-O-Gram?" you ask.
It's a specially gift wrapped, signed copy of The Nice Book, you can send to someone at the click of a button!


The Nice Book is full of little animals who teach you how they show their love for someone. This is a great gift for a grandchild, child, niece or nephew, a friend's new baby, a sweetheart or crush, or even someone you think needs to learn how to be a little nicer!

You order it, I personalize it, Books of Wonder wraps and sends it.

This service ends February 11 (earlier in some places), so get your order in soon.


As always, thank you for your support,
