Blog Time Time for New Art

It was a special week this week. It was Grandparents Day at our middle grandchildren's school. (we have five, these are the twins who are in 7th grade now) The older young woman in the top photo is their cousin, Abbie, who was visiting from Boston and joined us at the school. I drew her and our grandson, Aaron, later in the evening at their home. I drew Yael too, but neglected to upload that drawing.
It was a fun day and evening.

Later in the week I did my now ritual drawings at Starbucks, and gave them their stories.

And I continue to draw a portrait a night using photos on Sktchy App on my iPhone.

These are really fun to draw. I love all the different expressions I find there.

On Monday there were long lines at Starbucks ...

 ... and people on technology per usual.

and in the evening there is time for more Sktchy Portrait  drawing.

Feel free to vote for your favorites.

On Thursday we go to Barnes & Noble Café where I find great sales and wonderful people to draw, some for the first time like these two ...

and some who I have drawn numerous times like these three:
The gal on the far right had new highlights in her hair!

And tonight there was just time for one more sktchy portrait before I loaded my art from the week for you to see.

I appreciate your visiting here and thank you in advance for any comments you feel like leaving.
I wish you a Creative Week ahead.
Have fun.


  1. Hi your sketches! Sktchy is such a great place for reference images...great community too. Happy PPF!

  2. So cool. My favourites are Andreev followed by Eduardo followed by the last Starbucks drawings where just two people fill the frame and there's lots of colour and pattern.

  3. Oh wow, Eduardo is my favorite. Sounds like you had a wonderful week. Happy PPF

  4. I can't believe your twin grands are in 7th grade. I enjoy your sketches. I like the comments you put on some of them. Like the one where you answered your question of what did we do before technology? Crazy but true. We were a lot busier.We had to work a little for interaction with people. I think it was most appreciated. I still like to receive snail mail. I still connect with certain people that way.

  5. Your drawings and paintings are just great! Really fun journaling.
    Happy PPF ♥

  6. I am in love with your sketchy portrait. . . too funny. Love all the art. . .Blessings, Janet
