This morning my friend and i completed our morning walk amazed at how different things  appeared less than 24 hours since our last walk simply because the light was so different.

i would love to create a little slide show from our walk and will try to figure out how to do so but for now here are two little sketches; one from today and one from yesterday. They are both interesting in that they are painted on very inexpensive Canson sketchbook paper using Chinese brushes.

this is the copper beech with snow still caught on its’ branches. I used ultramarine blue, raw sienna and alizarin crimson, plus burnt sienna

this is just an idea of looking across one of the fields we pass. I used Prussian blue, raw sienna, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, and sepia.

There is so much more i need to do. However, i spent all of yesterday on things related to the house and my family and this afternoon in the ceramics studio gamely setting up a new slab with colored slips to try once more to create a large “painted” platter. I figure I’ll do better this time having learned from my mistakes. I’m wearing too many hats and missing awareness of what i really care about. The silence is absolute,and crippling.
