Drawing in Church

What can I say?  I’m getting in the habit of taking pencil and sketchbook everywhere that I go.  There’s a Twyla Tharp quote about this that I don’t remember offhand, something about having your tools with you.

On Saturday my drawing time became about making a Valentine for my valentine, the love of my life.


Most of these papers were done with gelatin printing.  It’s a good idea to keep a wide variety of pre-printed papers available for collage work, and I’m beginning to develop a system of sorting them by color families.  Here is a new goal:  set one of the vacation days aside for making papers with the kids, gelatin printing and other techniques.

Need to play with patterns!
