Sketchbook…more waiting…


…more airport drawings.

What is the difference between drawing at an airport and drawing on a subway?…

On a subway…
…you never know if the person you are drawing is going to get off at the next stop.

At the airport…
…people sit and sit and sit….and sit…tcp


Sketchbook @ another UVM Lane Series Concert

Although I am listening to jazz in my studio as I wrap up my Elephant book…I was back at another UVM Lanes Series Concert this weekend.
Les Amies…with flute, harp and viola. The music was lovely. Ibert, Bach, Fauré, Ravel, Clearfield & Debussy.


I was not the only one drawing in a sketchbook…One artist behind me….another down the row from her….both drawing! I have been sketching at concerts for 30 years…rarely have seen another sketchbook…never two!

I hope this is the beginning of a trend!

Listen to live music. Bring a sketchbook. Enjoy!…tcp


Sketchbook @ UVM Lane Series Concert

I first started drawing to music in the 1970’s as a student of Maurice Sendak’s at Parsons School of Design in NY. When Maurice told us how he worked to Mozart, I decided to give it a try. I never stopped. Music is a constant in my studio. I listen to classical, jazz, rock & roll and even opera. It depends on the book that I am working on and my mood. Right now, I have Stan Getz and Miles Davis with me.

When I leave my studio, I always have my sketchbook. I love drawing at concerts. Sometimes…I am close enough to draw the musicians. Often…I am distracted by the people I see in the audience! These sketches are from a UVM Lane Series Concert with Jamie Laredo & Sharon Robinson.  It was a wonderful concert.
