I’ve been prioritizing time for sketching lately. I identify as a painter, but a painting feels like too much pressure right now with all that I’m trying to balance. I’m stretched too thin and less is needed, for sure. As I get a handle of things, my sketchbook has given me respite. The goal of the subject matter is the same as my paintings: illuminating everyday beauty, marveling at moments misinterpreted as monotony, and savoring life’s abundant sweetness.
The first of a recent visit to Colonial Gardens in Fairfield, CT.
This sketch encourages the viewer to see things through the child’s perspective. To wonder.
The next one is capturing a recent record store visit to Vinyl Street Cafe.
I don’t like drawing faces, but I figure I might as well practice here and there.
The final sketch I’m sharing today I just completed, and it’s from a picture I took in our playroom.
I’ve had so much to write about on here that I haven’t written a thing. I’m dipping my toe back in.
