In my studio I have a basket filled with sketchbooks. They contain sketches, notans, small pastels, memory notes, ideas, poems, quotes and general thoughts about the scenes. Here I give you a sneak peak into one of them.

Have I convinced you?
If you would like to buy one like this, here is the link.
Do you have a favorite sketchbook? Which one and why?
In the studio each painting begins with preliminary sketches and the colors notes written on site. When I am removed from the scene the work itself takes on a life of its own. So I sign off with a photo of my most recent large studio oil. It about half way finished. More later.
