Doodle bag


Sometimes I start out very seriously. I sketch using accurate proportion, line up what is intriguing and then feed my instinct. There are other times when either whimsy or being very casual take hold.

Either way, I finish what I started and evaluate the outcome. Do I like the line quality? Do I feel what I saw? Do I show to other people?

I don’t know how I feel about this sketch. Why did I draw Black-Eyed Susans? (

  1. The folds and nooks of any sort of fabric or casing are an intrigue and a challenge and immediately capture my eye when looking at classical paintings of women in gowns, men in ruffled collars. The flower helps my eye make the connection between what is human made, sewn, stitched, meant for purpose, and what is so delicately just a glance away and impossible for us to try and sew or craft using our limited abilities. The two side-by-side contrast and compliment the whole, and I enjoy this piece very much.
