I have a 16-lb. turkey and all the trimmings to do so I got my granddaughter Emma and my grandson Mason to collaborate for today’s drawing. Emma says the turkey didn’t have enough detail so she added “rainbow slippers” for its feet and a Pilgrim hat. Mason has just started studying Chinese at his public (!) middle school so I asked him to add a few characters to give the whole thing a classy touch. It says “Hello China”—something he knows how to write. I added the sun, hills and trees. Happy Thanksgiving!

Late start getting on the road today and way too much traffic! I finally decided to sketch while my husband drove. I made a stab at assorted trees. Cell phone towers are everywhere!

Second, another oddly colored face, based on a photo:

I was so impressed with the ink drawings people have been done I thought I’d try it. I’m not thrilled with the result; I think I overworked it. But no experience is wasted, right? This is the forested slope behind our house.

all three paintings on the wall

The first day of spring, and I’m thinking about the brighter and warmer days to come. This morning I imagined I would paint a view of a salt marsh, but as I began working the painting evolved away from literal (littoral) representation and into something more abstracted.
