Making A Mark

Doing a bookmark as a self imposed assignment helped
me practice some basics while learning to do my drawing, 
painting, and designing work on the computer.

Still Having Blog Issues

For a moment thought I'd solved the blog problems.
Then I realized, not so fast.
Whatever this is.... I will overcome.


Thanks for staying with me.

A Shore Thing


Rolling waves 
Softening 
in the shallows
Swirling round my ankles
Moving sand under my toes 
Filling my pail
Adding shells and popping seaweed
Cooling sea breeze 
Just writing this brings relief 
From the sweltering city

Sense Of Humid




my illustration from WHAT WILL THE WEATHER BE? by Lynda DeWitt
Genetically predisposed to living in a colder climate.

All familial ancestors of whom I am aware, originated 
in or around Belarus and St Petersburg, Russia. 
Extreme Philadelphia heat (90+ degrees) along with
extreme Philadelphia humidity, a complete anathema.
Seeking relief everywhere possible including some
portfolio images.
