it's been too long. time goes running.
I have so much in folders, bookmarked, etc; pictures, notes. I must get it all on here. But for now, there's this.
ARTLIFE LIFEART. Beauty in the street. Art is everywhere, whether made by someone's hand or occurring just by being.
While walking in Oakland late at night I found a plastic bag that was ripped and contorted and thickened in a way, it had become another sort of being. I traced it on a wall and painted it. I was going to go back and touch it up just a bit, as the perfectionist I am, but it was gone before I saw it in the light. The bag is in my car right now, being its art self. I'm not finished with it yet.
These days I've been looking at lots of art, which is fabulous. My own work is like a choo choo train that is meandering with a blurry map. I'm continuing to work on bits and pieces of photography and drawings mostly, along with Plan B of my commission.
Last weekend I met up with a SF Sketchers for the first time, it was cool. At Sutro Park. Here's a snapshot of my sketch, it's cute I guess.
I took some snapshots of sketches from over the years that are in my travel sketchbook that is always in my bag. This one filled up a month or two ago.

Here is one of the proofs from my New Mexico trip. This house was far away from everything. It's colors juxtaposed with all the colors near it created a soft lightness, bright beauty. All the rubble like beach stones.
Sylvia Sleigh, what can I say? Bravo then and bravo now. Bravo for all time. RELEVANT.
