Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Drawing from Life

I love the immediacy of sketching from life, especially with charcoal. The velvety black produced by a big stick of soft willow charcoal is very satisfying. It's such a simple medium, as old as drawing itself.
