visual art

I bounce around with what art I do. I’m going to be part of a lit-reading series on April 6th. Cracked Walnut, run by Satish Jayaraj, has 19 of them scheduled all over the Twin Cites between March 18 and April 12th. I’ll be writing a new story or two to read on April 6th, but really, you should go to any of them. There are so many talented people with so many wonderful things to share with you.

Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of sketching and painting in watercolors. Here are some of the highlights:

First, the sketches. These were largely done in my sketchbook or on notecards.

    1. Thanks! I’m so glad you enjoyed them. Everything I’ve done is available for sale, I just haven’t been actively working to sell them. When I lived in Lowertown I opened my apartment for art crawls, but I don’t currently have a portfolio together for gallery submissions. My new Facebook page is a step back in that direction.

    1. Hey buddy! Thanks, I was rather happy with how that sketch turned out too! It’s all about context really, how we present ourselves in the opportunities we have to do so. One of the great things about continuing friendships is the new contexts in which we begin to see each other. 🙂
