Sketches From Europe

Over the next few weeks I will be posting work from my recent trip to Europe. These are fast drawing while sitting on the bus traveling from Pisa to the Cinque Terre in Italy.

Winter Water Woods

Here is the work currently showing at the NorthWoods Stewardship Center titled “While wondering through a wooded winter wonderland a whale wooly mammoth and wombat wax Wagnerian wearing a wacky wealthy wardrobe.” It will be on display until Sunday. It is also part of the alphabet book I am working on.

Opening this weekend at the NorthWoods Stewardship Center

I am excited to be one of 26 artists exhibiting work at the NorthWoods Stewardship Center in East Charleston Vermont. The exhibit is part of a celebration of 26 years of natural resource stewardship in the North East Kingdom of Vermont. I will be showing an illustration created specifically for the even that also ties in with the alphabet book I have been working on. The title is “While wondering through a wooded winter wonderland a whale wooly mammoth and wombat wax Wagnerian wearing a wacky wealthy wardrobe.” I will post the work at some point after the opening. Unfortunately I will not be at the opening on Sunday as I will be sketching in Europe.

For more information you can visit the North Woods Stewardship Center site here.

Weekly Bow Tie Guy on a page from my Sketch Book

As I have recently taken up skiing, I signed up to be a chaperon for my daughters school on ski days. Last week while resting at the end of the day, I drew a few individuals eating in the lodge at Burke Mountain. I had previously drawing the chipmunk.

Weekly Bow Tie Guy-Camel

Camel (ˈkaməl)

Last year while giving a presentation on careers in art at the local grade school I gave the students an opportunity to challenge me to draw whatever they said on the board (a somewhat frightening proposal).

One student asked me to draw a camel. I just couldn't bring myself to draw a normal camel. I added the extra humps to emphasize that there are no limits to drawing and your imagination.

I think I will title this one ‘It Has Been a Long Week.’

Waiting to See the President

A few weeks ago, I was called in to meet with the president of the college. This seems to be happening more lately. While waiting I took some much needed sketch time.
