Hunting for Cat Tails

October 12, 2017

Happens every year – along about mid-October, I get hungry for paint and color. Inktober is just too dark.   I caved a bit early this year. The weather has been hot and muggy outside, the remnants of a tropical storm.  It feels like July, not cool and crisp, the way I like it.  Clearly the […]

Reconstruction: Inktober 1

May 20, 2015

I am beginning the slow reconstruction of 6 months of blogging.  All of this began last fall when I was away from teaching, on fall break down in Eastern North Carolina.  That’s when I read about the Inktober Initative by Jake Parker and decided, ‘what the heck’.  It would be great to do a drawing […]
