Since last we met

I have used up all my sketching paper. I have used the fronts and backs and have even overlapped sketches. My five-year-old looked at a page filled with cherubs copied from master drawings and laughed. "That baby is sitting on another baby!" she said. He was but he wasn't, not exactly. They were just in overlapping drawings on the same page. I am going to order a couple reams of loose newsprint as soon as ever I can, so I can draw and draw and draw and draw. 

In the meantime, here's another little homemade notecard. For awhile I've wanted to do a fawn sleeping among wild strawberries, and I want to develop it more than this, on better paper, but this is a nice preliminary, I think. 

I'm also working on some simple, nature inspired pendants to cast in silver. I'm not giving up on the Madonna and Child ring (and pendant), but I want to get some more easily accomplished pieces done first while I continue to practice. This leaf is about an inch long and still needs smoothing and polishing.


  1. Adorable fawn and a pretty little leaf. I hope your paper shows up soon so you can keep creating!

  2. Looks very delicate that little fawn, the paper works wonderful with it I think.

    1. Thanks, Leen. I'm glad you like it. I do really enjoy working on brown paper.

  3. I don't know if this will work but I'll keep trying until I figure it out. Your fawn and leaf are delicate and also strong and sure. I love looking at them. aunt deAnna

  4. Hi, Aunt Deanna, and thank you! I'm delighted (and kind of impressed) that you figured out how get here and leave a comment!
