The size of the paper I use to sketch on any given day usually corresponds to how much time I have to cover it. So you may conclude by seeing this, the tiniest of my sketchbooks, that today, between giving my students a quiz and going to assorted meetings, I only had a  bit of time. But I found a few minutes and a crabapple tree with some shade below and spent a few minutes looking up.

    I had just enough time today to eat a crabapple if I didn’t chew at all and just swallowed, and you found enough time to paint one. You are my idol and inspiration to do the same. Kudos la professor. John

    This reminds me of a Japanese print in it’s purity and simplicity Shari. Just beautiful 🙂

    This is a real change of pace and I love it. So would Hokusai!


    • Thanks Lee! I don’t know if you are the same way but when I sit down to sketch I never know what will happen. Sometimes I draw really slowly and carefully and other times the hand moves quickly and less accurately. But I don’t know what will happen until I put pen to paper. It is the oddest thing. Do you ever have that experience?
