Woody Allen in Seattle 2011

Feet tapping to the music while he crossed and uncrossed his legs, Woody Allen played his clarinet. Woody Allen and his  New Orleans Jazz Band came to town for one night.The place was packed. Musicians and audience had a good time. Having an Artpen and moleskine sketchbook with me, I made some drawings in the dark. I love drawing this way, because afterwards there is a surprise for me.- abstract drawings which usually capture the feeling of the moment better than if I had tried to draw what I saw with the lights on.

My new years resolution is to post a short blog every day. The theme will be travel drawings and paintings. Come travel with me through my sketchbooks and artists books. I’ll take you to Bhutan, Paris – lots of places. Happy New Year !

Empty wall Decorates Itself

I went to sleep looking at a plain, uninteresting  wall that needed some paintings or posters to perk it up. I woke up to this!

Canon PowerShot G11 ISO 100 13.0 sec at f/2.8. I used my small Gorilla tripod which is great for traveling ( my luggage usually gets checked.)  I’m sure it’s because of this black and white striped metal thing that has legs that curl around steady objects.The G11 is small too, perfect for me for all the time.
