Mothers Day/Michele Bedigian

Each weekend Studio 1482 will be featuring posts from the One Drawing A Day archives. Today’s post is by Michele Bedigian, from back in 2016. It’s titled “Mother’s Day with Grandma.” #ODADarchive I thought it only fitting since Mother’s day is around the corner to post a maternal moment in my sketchbook … Happy Mother’s Day […]

She Passed By Quietly

I remember seeing the Morgan, even if I didn’t remember her name, when I was a kid. In fact, I have rather strong memories of the Charles W.

67 minutes

Sorry about the delay in posting this morning. It was one of those mornings where I knew there was something I misplaced in my head. It wasn’t too long before I realized it was Time!! Above is a thumbnail I recently did in preparation for a fiber art piece I’m working on. It’s for an […]

Folk singers

In honor of St. Patrick’s day (tomorrow) I’ve posted a drawing of sea shanty singers that I did recently at the seaport. Sea shanties are an old sailing tradition, which of course means they’re from all over the world,  but the group sing-along has strong Irish roots! Like me : ) – Veronica
