Gateway City Arts show

"Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair" was in the recent 4th Annual Small Works Show at Gateway City Arts in Holyoke, MA. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it there to see it in person, but Gateway has posted a video walk through of the show along with more photos here: www.gatewaycityarts.com/small-works-gallery/the-4th-annual-small-works-exhibit/

New year, new sketchbook

 Made a new Montanapolitancroptic sketchbook, with white, grey toned, tan toned, and watercolor paper. Here are some favorites from last year's book.

Two sketchbooks, one old and one new, seen from above with pages fanned out.
