From a series I’ve been working on about food. Have a great week.
Riding into town earlier this week I got a chance to do a quick study on the subway. This woman’s energy was a little unusual and inviting to draw. With her chin up high and such an interesting portrait I couldn’t resist.
p.s. Happy Birthday Chris!

This is a drawing I made in the shipyard up at the Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut. For the past few years, Margaret and I have been bringing the artists of the Dalvero Academy – including several Studio 1482 members – up there to draw and document the restoration of the Morgan, the only wooden whaling ship left in the world. It has been an incredible experience for all of us. The museum is hosting an exhibition of our work this spring – stay tuned for more details to come!

I found another of the series of ink and washes drawings of Mama and Baby elephants. This one is a protective hug and trunk caress by Mama of her little baby.
Grabbed a crayon and made a drawing of my son’s favorite dragon-Despina
Woke this morning to a blanket of snow. The kids were out early taking advantage of it’s fresh start. Me myself? …preferred nothing more than admiring it from inside with a yummy hot chocolate. – Have a warm one, Michele
The fragrant deliciousness of California organic fruits pretty much defies description, and the ripe apricots I bought at the Culver City farmer’s market were best in show. This a chalk sketch I did of a middle-aged local assessing some of the goodies at that stand.
I rang in the New Year by spending some time teaching with Margaret at our Dalvero Academy workshop in Washington DC. We had GREAT weather for the mall – 67 degrees – and then it snowed a few days later. But by then we were in the museums. Wow, the Smithsonian branches have so much information it’s almost crazy.
Couldn’t do much drawing since I was teaching, but I did manage a little bit here and there. This is a view of the Air and Space museum, from a corner near the back – ha! Always good to practice drawing any chance I get.
Happy 2012 everyone, hope it’s a year full of One Drawing A Day!
