Portrait Drawing, Wet Canvas!

Working with the On-line group over at Wetcanvas, for the weekly drawing event. Here's last night's efforts on a portrait done with prismacolor pencils. 9" x 7"

I'm working on getting the Sunday Morning Art class up and running for January and Feb.
More to follow as to times and location. Also considering an afternoon painting class on Sundays too.

The Manhattan Bag!

My friend Sarah Hart has one of these bags, hers is made out of Phifertex, a lightweight, but very durable outdoor fabric. I liked it so much that I wanted to have one too. She told me where and we proceeded to look at several locations in New York, but each place was out. Back home, I found the same phifertex fabric, and created the same bag, as I remembered it. I added an inside pocket and used heavy-duty zipper and pull to give a slight industrial look.

What can you put in a Manhattan bag? A sketchbook, a laptop, files, your lunch, an overnight bundle, Farmer's market produce, what ever you like.

I just finished making 8 bags. They measure approx 17" x 17", straps for over the shoulder, walking up 7th avenue, or South Beach. Cost, $80. I have them at Funk & Junk, or email if you are interested in one.
