Still sketchin'...

...last Friday night, drawing in the galleries at the DIA (this is the bronze of Judith by Antonio del Pollaiolo), AND...

... at "Squat & Draw," a sketching event held at a house being rehabbed near the Detroit /Hamtramck border, with the art created being sold to raise funds for a NYC field trip for CCS students (photos by Ginni Reiter, top photo with artist and accordionist Sam Bates)...

...AND also at Specs Howard's Zombie Sketch Night, which I moderated. Video of the results to come soon.

Oh yeah, and I did another Optik ad, for the baseball Opening Day issue of Metro Times.

Some photos

All shot with my aging iPhone. The DSLR is not quite as handy.

Somewhere in Time

...on page 58, actually, of the August 29, 2016 issue of Time magazine. That's where there's a small photo of the Little Library I painted, the one in front of the Hatch Art gallery! So that's a first.

You gotta have he(art)

A very smart person at the DIA decided to hand out foam cut-out hearts to visitors for the Valentine's Day weekend, with the idea that you could lay the heart in front of your most beloved artwork. Well, I'm too much in love with too many items in the DIA's collection to choose just one, so I snapped some semi-selfies of me giving my heart to just a few of my favorites.

No jokes - I'm pretty sure I've touched the little sculpture "Donkey" by Renee Sintenis  every time I've visited the museum since I was in grade school. Love...
