The feeling my skin gets is
iridescent,
nothing in me except what shines on the outside,

- excerpt from The Birds by David Posner


Back in November, our power was out for a few days. On the third morning with no power, I woke up around 4 a.m. wanting to draw. I drew by candlelight until just before sunrise when I left the house to watch the day awake.

sketching on the train

pen sketches, hand and portrait


Recently, my husband and I made our way to Seattle for our anniversary. I blogged about it over on my photography blog.

While on the train, I did some quick sketches of his hand and a portrait of a stranger. I don't often draw strangers that are around me, but Lynn Cohen's amazing urban sketching has inspired me to try this more.
