Sketching Group on Friday Mornings

I love looking at sketchbooks that some artists do. The ones with the ink drawings and bright splashes of watercolor. Usually, they’re scenes of exotic markets full of color, or dramatic cliffs along a coastline. Every time I see one of them, I think:

“I need to draw more.”

I would like to find some other folks to draw with, for fun and for accountability. If you have wanted to draw more, or like the idea of keeping sketches to remember a time or place, you are welcome to join me.

Friday mornings, 9:30AM
Open Door Coffee Company in Hudson

Everyone is welcome. Bring a sketchbook and pencil or pen. Simple supplies are best.

There’s no fee, other than your coffee. If the weather is nice, we go outside to sketch.

And keep an eye on my Facebook page ( I’ll post schedule or locations changes there.

Hope to see you on a Friday morning!

Art Fair Aftermath

Ah, art fairs! Aren’t they fun? Wandering among the booths, browsing wares from familiar artists and new makers, picking up something cool for yourself or a gift.

Yes, and from my perspective as an exhibitor, they are fun to do. I love talking to people about my work, hearing what they enjoy, seeing what they’ve purchased, and watching them get jazzed about art in general. Plus, the artists at these shows are the nicest people around. I’ve made some great friends with folks in neighboring booths.

And, to be honest. I like setting up my booth and seeing my work all displayed in the bright white tent. It looks cool.

But the flip side is...
