Abstract Art Anxiety Ink Paper Sketchbook diary Sunflowers

While They’re Away. Sketches and Bible Reading Progress.

Progress in reading. Friends are away. I have no idea how it got to be 7:30 am without a wink of sleep, but it’s here and I’m wide awake. I can recount all I’ve done. I’ve been rather productive, it’s just that it doesn’t seem as though it should be so late. My closest friends […]

These are recent entries in my personal sketchbook. They’re mindscapes – an artists version of a CAT scan. I’ve done my best to toss out the notion that I must create something beautiful.

Poison Oak and the Dental Saga

The highlight of my week has been to getting poison oak. I’m not upset about it, not really. I’ve got it on my neck and under my chin as well as on my right hand. I’ve been doing alcohol rinses and so it should calm down pretty soon. I was outside looking for a garden […]
