  • time to mow the lawn

    One problem with our 24 hours of daylight this time of year, if you don't mow every 3 days, in 6 days the yard looks like this! Quick and dirty doodle, pencil and pastel on card stock.

  • Highlights

    Just playin' around, doodling, ink and pastels on colored paper.

  • On a cool rainy morning in the North country

    The temperature at eleven this morning is 44°F. (6°C.), a light rain is falling interspersed with sudden, fierce, downpours. Perfect time to spend with a small open fire and a good book.
