More recent sketches of brush and weeds.

Every page in this particular sketchbook is starting to look very similar. I hope to finish it by August if I continue at this rate, but soon I think I will change up my subject matter a little bit. You can see more sketches that I’ve posted at Sketching in Nature. Besides sketching, I have […]

All Day Artist’s Date

This past Saturday I had the chance to have the entire day to myself, which I spent in Northampton, MA. I have a lot of good memories from there, and it has a lot of creative energy. I only made one sketch all day, but I did have a good time and I got a […]

Morning Sketches

I’ve started to keep a small sketchbook in my car so I can make sketches before work, and when I am out and about. I haven’t branched out into color yet though.


I spent some time at the Franklin County Relay for Life this past weekend. I would have loved to do even more sketching, but there was so much going on that I couldn’t manage. My husband’s family gets really involved in the Relay every year, so I hope to sketch some more next year. Above […]

The Hall of Justice

I made this quirky drawing while in the Jury Pool waiting room (it was too big to scan at once so I had to stitch two scans together). I had only been called in for Jury Duty one other time, and not in this particular courthouse. By the time I drove into the city, found […]

More Panera Sketches

These are some sketches that I’ve done at Panera, on different occasions. I am going to have to find another weekend sketching spot pretty soon. The staff is starting to recognize me and I need to change things up. However, there are no independently run coffee shops, only chain stores like Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts or […]

It was a good Good Friday

At the Radio Station, ballpoint and tombow marker, 4/10/09 Coffee, ballpoint and tombow marker, 4/10/09 I had Good Friday off from work, which was a welcome break. It gave me a chance to volunteer to answer phones for the Spring Pledge Drive of the Q 99.7. They are a listener supported station and stay on […]

Sketching and People Watching at the Jiffy Lube

Sketching at the Jiffy Lube, ballpoint and tombow N95 in Moleskine, 3/28/09 I had to get my oil changed and it is usually the busiest on Saturday mornings because that it when a lot of people have spare time to take care of mundane things (like oil changes). They told me it was going to […]

Other People’s Saturday Afternoons

Sketching at Panera, sepia Pitt pen and pencil in moleskine, 3/21/09 I went to Panera Bread and sat in the corner, near the entrance. I was actually quite a bold move, as there was a window behind me and quite a lot of people stopped to observe. I got a few approving glances and smiles […]
