Looks kind of like...Christmas doesn't it? Odd for a summer project but I have been working with another artist in my church to design decorative panels for a massive set of doors to our new sanctuary. The doors will be hand carved in Asia, out of beautiful wood. I am so thrilled to be part of this, but scared too, this art is going to be around for a long time.

I am not so good at meetings. After nibbling on bagels and sipping more cups of coffee than I should, I constantly doodle and sketch. I give no mercy to all those sitting near me, not even the presenter of the moment. Don't move, just hold that pose, oh, got that profile, good line of the neck, go back to that gesture.

I enjoyed that I caught this bikini babe's jaunty stride, (carrying her cell phone of course).
(I sketched my son-in-law here, a fine beach volleyball player.)

As I enjoy myself in the warmth and pleasure of this summer, I am reminded of my summers of childhood. How they seemed to stretch for an endless time, and how much I loved swimming, and tree climbing, and biking. How I could spend all day drawing, and dreaming. Best of all, stretching out in a comfy spot with a good book and reading all day long.

Godric by Frederick Buechner
One of my absolutely favorite first lines from a novel. After that line you had to keep reading on.
This illustration and the one with a bird in her nest are my work from an Early Reader book titled "Summer Returns".
