A Light in the Night

Many of the Chesapeake Lighthouses are being renovated by private individuals and organizations. This is a sketch of one - only accessible by boat.

From My Travels a Standard Sketch

Isn't this the same picture that every one sitting in an airline terminal draws?

Traveling Watercolor Moleskine

I was traveling with my new watercolor moleskine and as many of us I had waiting time in the terminal. So out came the moleskine and this is what happened. I was struck by the bright yellow handsets on the telephone kiosk. They seemed to jump out at me - so I tried to capture some of that.

The style of my moleskine entries has been, I must confess, highly influenced by the marvelous posts on Karen Blados' Sketch Blog. Karen is a very talented and imaginative artist. Stop by and take a look at her site.

A Day Remembered in my Moleskine

It was just a clogged drain...easy to fix..right? Well it turned into an all day project. One of those where each step you take you find two more thinks to fix.

Moleskine Records the Forgotten

As we headed up the road from Florida we suddenly became aware that we had forgotten a couple of items. We keep saying that we should make a checklist for departure - who makes checklist!!

From my Old Molskine

Visiting my relatives in Boca Raton, FL I sketched the view from the patio. I was amazed at the number of Cable lines radiating from this one pole.

More From My Molskine

This was an entry after my external hard drive crashed. I was able to salvage most of the data but not all. It goes to show that even external backups to magnetic media are also subject to the same problems of internal hard drives.
The other page is another limp attempt at starting to be more active in journaling. That was a while back and it didn't last long.

What's in My Moleskine Cont'd

This entry in my moleskine was an experiment with some colored pens. I didn't get the result I wanted but I had fun trying.

What's in My Moleskine

Once again life had intervened in my postings. I have decided to put some posts up that recap 2007 and prove that I have still been sketching - even if I haven't posted much. Often I would just doodle in a spiral bound sketch book - and I do mean doodle meaningless scribbles. The next few posts will chronicle some entries into my moleskine.

These were some interesting bookcases - the stackable lawyer bookcases - I saw at a big antique flea market.
