For my nightly drawings I’ve been trying out the Kurtake pen with Sumi-e Ink on Borden & Riley #234 Bleedproof paper for pens and I love it!  Not quite like any other pen.  Not quite like any other brush.

Makes for very expressive lines and mark making.  I’ll definitely be playing with these some more.

This last one is a fine example of what happens mid-drawing when you fall asleep with the pen still in your hand!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
