A CHANGE OF VIEW
 Both views have beauty, but a change of view can also be exhilarating! From yards and sidewalks covered with snow,  to a beautiful turquoise sea. From the snow capped seedpods poking up in my garden,  to bougainvillea and hibiscus in full bloom. From the m...

SKETCHING AGAIN . . . ON CAPTIVA
It's kind of comical to hear the weather forecasters warn of being prepared before braving the elements today.   Yes, it's a little cold by Florida standards, but still paradise for these Wisconsinites!   And now it's time to pull out my sketchbook, pens, a...

FAREWELL and WELCOME
This post is a farewell to 2014.  It was a wonderful year and I learned a lot.   Now we're balancing on the last petal of 2014 and in just a few hours a brand new year will be opening up in right front of our eyes.  I have no doubt that it will be a beautif...

"PAINT LIKE DEGAS"
A few months ago I found this book on the shelves at Barnes and Noble.  It's filled with exercises designed to get you thinking about Edgar Degas' style and trying your hand at it.  It's a beautiful little book and, as the cover suggests, speaks to the use ...
