Chesapeake Lightship

I visited the Chesapeake Lightship in Baltimore as part of the 2017 Maryland Lighthouse Challenge.

Manassas/Bull Run

It was hot when I went to Manassas Battlefield Park (which we Yankees like to refer to as Bull Run). I drew the Stone House from the car, and Brawner Farm from a photograph I took.

Berkeley Springs, WV

Back in November, I visited Berkeley Springs, West Virginia for a spa weekend. My appointment wasn’t until the afternoon (unlike everybody else in my party), so I had a lot of time to kill wandering the tiny town. For part of it, I hung out at Lighthouse Latte and drew the building across the road.

Georges Lemmen

Georges Lemmen is one of those painters I discovered by clicking Wikipedia links from painters I’d heard of.

Gustave Courbet

Gustave Courbet was a brilliant painter but wow, some of his paintings are NSFW.

Wickliffe Church

I took advantage of the gorgeous weather on Mothers Day to visit a mostly inactive church in Berryville: Wickliffe Church.

Pilot Metropolitan

My friend Angela gave me a Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen. And I love it, even if I cannot get within three feet of it without getting ink all over myself. One night I decided to play with it for a while by drawing assorting pictures of my cat, Hook.

Comic: Wise Words from Kori Michele


Drawing by me; inspiring words by the very talented Kori Michele

May 34th

This is what happens when you forget the month has changed until you’ve already written the last one. So you go for technically correct which, as we all know, is the best kind of correct.

George Washington Birthplace National Monument

The weather was lovely at George Washington Birthplace National Monument. The house on the grounds was inspired by architecture of the time period (in other words, based on nothing in particular). The foundation of the real house was found about 100 feet away. Still, I enjoyed sketching one of the few houses George Washington never slept in.
