The New Sketchbook

I wanted a book of collected images, both my own and others, to keep track of themes in my work. Initially the idea was to create order out of chaos–I was feeling overwhelmed by all the images I was painting and drawing–but I think it will be more like herding cats.

This idea to have a place to review images is new, and I think it will be helpful. I copy images from various sketchbooks, some I have in my studio, others are portable, but they record themes, images, and ideas that surface again and again. I want to work these into oil paintings or larger works on paper. Gouache is a great favorite but I am constantly attracted to oils. Soon.
