That tree

There’s a big old tree I’ve been looking at for years. It’s in the woods near my house and I see it when I walk my dog. Needless to say, I don’t bring my sketch stuff with me on dog walks but I do have my phone and I occasionally snap photos of things I see that might be interesting to paint later on. Painting from a phone shot is kind of cool because it’s as if you’re just catching glimpses of something. You draw a bit and the phone turns off. You paint a bit and the phone turns off. I know I could change the phone settings but that wouldn’t be nearly as much fun as this.

    It’s a pleasure to visit your blog every day. I’ve taken a month to go thru all your postings…my, my, you are one dedicated blogger!


    • Thanks so much Joan. I can’t believe you have devoted all that time to going through the drawings and paintings on the blog. In fact, I am a dedicated sketcher and the blog is a way to make sure I commit to drawing every day. Well, it started out that way but now it is so much a part of my daily routine that it is hard to stop.
