Well, it has been too long since I've posted here on my blog, I'm afraid my studio page on facebook has been getting all my attention. Emily has been bugging me (rightfully so) to get back to updating these posts. She's in town on her spring break, so I thought I'd self-impose a Take Your Daughter To Work Day and bring her along with me on a little trip down the coast from our town for an afternoon of sketching and watercolors. We're between storms now, so the sky is ripe with voluminous clouds that are marching overhead from the west. Makes for exciting fodder for future paintings.

Here's Emily filling a page in her sketchbook. Yeah, she's that good.

Beach bum taking notes on the surrounding colors. One of my favorite ways to use a sketchbook is to draw first, add watercolor, then fill the margins with notes for future reference in the studio. Until next time- cheers! D


  1. What a great experience to be able to share with your daughter. You're a lucky guy!

  2. Hey Denny! what a great afternoon... I know this spot well, having done a little "plien air" there with a friend once! Emily ... the acorn doesn't fall too far from the tree" as they say!

    best to all , happy spring!


    1. Happy spring to you, Kit~ I hope you are well and having FUN!
