" The Inkwell Family Collection"

With inspiration from a fabulous artist named Carla Sonheim, I have done some quick sketches, using ink, a very old brush and a Micron pen. These are in my 6X9 sketchbook. I love the looseness of the figures, and the simple marks that bring personality to them. Thanks Carla!

"Tybee Love "

A salute to Tybee Island Georgia, a magical place.  (also, every denim jacket needs some paint)

" Hope"

This piece is a study in several things.  First, a lesson for me in using more neutrals and fewer bright colors.  I think that was a success. Second, this was a study in multiple mediums.  This work includes acrylics, graphite, and oil pastels.  Great fun working this way!
