Sketch Crawl

Once a month three friends and I meet to sketch. It's part of a global drawing marathon called SketchCrawl. Anyone can participate and anyone can organize their own event... it just takes a couple of people who're interested in improving their drawing skills. Mine need help! I've taken drawing classes and I've drawn a lot but I don't draw daily, and that's the key. Draw every day. There's bound to be improvement.

You won't hear from me for a couple of weeks... we're leaving in the morning for a 2 week tour of Israel. I've been obsessing for weeks about which art supplies to take and I've finally decided on just a simple set of drawing materials and my little watercolor paintbox with a waterbrush. We'll be doing lots of walking and will be too tired at the end of the day for me to want to do much in the way of art-making. I know that I "see" better when I draw so that will be my goal... to see and draw a lot. I'll collect ephemera and take lots of pictures and store up lots of memories from which to make art after I get home.

Works of Faith

Two of the pieces in my Sermon Notes series have been accepted into "Works of Faith", June 8 - August 10, and "Gifts of the Spirit" August 17 - October 12. The exhibitions are sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church in Portland, OR. I haven't exhibited my work for many years; it feels good to have been accepted into these shows in my home town.
