After a couple of busy workshop-weeks, I'm hoping to get back to some blogging.
During workshops, we tend to listen to a lot of soundtracks as we work. One that I was reminded about was the soundtrack for Children of Dune (the only Dune film experience that I thought was effective. James McAvoy is amazing in it).
After a couple of very busy weeks which included 2 workshops, an art open and a computer virus that necessitated a complete wipe and reload, I am trying to get caught up on it all!
Last weekend was the Greg Manchess Alla Prima workshop of awesome. You can read about it starting here.
Just a few days ago, I was meandering on this beach in the middle of Florida....
The birds there were pretty spectacular. As was the sun, wind and water... The seaside always makes me think of this Carpenters song....
It was such a lovely visit. I'll post more pics if I get the chance...
New year/month - new Moleskine -
2-3 minute heads. In the new teensy purse Moleskine, balanced upon my knee.

I've been slammed and not getting to the blog of late (warning - it will not get much better over the next month). However, I just showed this performance to my son and was remembering how awesome it was. So, enjoy!
Looking forward to new album!
Last page of the bright-red purse Moleskine!
Time to break out a new one.
First life drawing session of the year...
Charcoal on paper.
It has been raining like crazy (I know it's Seattle - but we're known for *drizzle*, not for actual *rain*)... Snoqualmie Falls is raging as a result. (You can see impressive video of it here).
A more typical view of the falls is featured in the atmospheric opening of Twin Peaks, from years gone by....
New Year. More sketching.

A friend of ours was sick today and very kindly gave us her tickets to a Piano Guys concert this evening. They are a talented, entertaining musical experience. They kicked off their performance playing this piece:

Short pose day....
Great model - not great capturing, but she was fun to draw...
I've had so much on my plate of late, that very little art is happening. This is one of the few things I've been able to squeeze in - halfway through a pencil study on toned paper.....
Another lovely a capella group, Home Free, singing Christmas carols. Give a listen!
The fabulous Krab Jab Studio
is hosting a solo show for the also fabulous Terese Nielsen this month.
The open was well attended with fans and collectors.
Lots of schmoozing with Terese and others.
Tarot cards were read.
Terese spoke about her art, and inspiration for this show - which was a lovely mix is past work, studies and new pieces created just for this.

I may or may not have bought this preliminary sketch.....
Life drawing - costume week, short poses...
