In a couple blogs lately, you've heard me talk about the classes I'm taking and short stories I've been writing for them. I haven't said much more than that. Well, writers, I have a deal for you. This week, WMG Publishing is offering 50% off all their classes this week. If you want to get … Continue reading Writers – never stop learning
As I mentioned in my blog yesterday, I've been in the painting mood lately. I'm certain there is a rhythm to the ups and downs of my creative tendencies, but I've never sat down to figure them out. Maybe I should. Along with working on Palladium today (writing), I prepared several blocked in paintings which … Continue reading Painting starts
I'm finding it very hard to believe that 2020 is nearly over. I wish I could say I was glad, but really I feel like we have a long road ahead of us still with COVID-19. Oh, I think we'll recover and life will go back to the way it was (more or less, because … Continue reading Space 2020-6

I worked really hard on it last weekend because I wanted to have it done in 2018. Here's a couple pictures of it in progress: … Continue reading I think I’m finally done!
I've made October an interesting month so far. Now not only do I have the "get the words done" goal each day, but I also have a picture to draw and ink for Inktober. Hopefully you saw my post last Thursday showing all the one's I'd completed up to that point. Yes, there will be … Continue reading Progress – October 8, 2018
While I was going back through my sketchbooks looking for an egg picture I drew some time ago, I started thinking that it's been awhile since I showed a sketchbook page. I never did find the egg I was looking for (though I did find several others which I'd completely forgotten about - talk about … Continue reading Sketchbook pages
