Big Horizon

After spending the last two months consumed with The Sketchbook Project, my brain needed a rest. So, after sending my book off to New York last Tuesday I took the rest of the week off from creative endeavors. I am now ready to kick off the new year! I am starting a series of drawings that will be an extension of the topic "Coffee & Cigarettes." Look for those to be posted as they are completed.

Wow, that's amazing! No matter how many drawings you managed to finish in that sketchbook - you definitely went for quality over quantity and it shows! Wonderful!

Oh, this is truly beautiful. You took a very difficult set-up with the clear ashtray that distorted the pattern and captured its interest and beauty perfectly. Well done! nancy

Quite a surprise to see how beautiful cigarettes can look in the hands of the right artist. I too think this is an amazing piece, the pattern through the glass, the colors, the technique. You can almost touch the texture of the fabric. Same goes for your cupcake. Really good and different. Checked out your photography too and love it.
