For the front door of our flat.

A study to see how quickly I could get the colors and shape in watercolor.

From cherry tomatoes. This was the stem after I'd roasted everything and we'd eaten the tomatoes with our dinner.

Bought four for a pound at Church Street market this afternoon.

On its way to the recycling bin.

In anticipation of paperwork...

More of a dark pink onion, really.

One of one hundred.

Pink Lady.

Not mine, but found and bought today.

In Oxford all day today, but spent the time walking, and not pausing to draw. Here's a shallot from the bowl of vegetables in the kitchen instead.

With two eyes on top.

Dried flowers in the corner of the living room.

Waiting their turns for school lunches, I think.

Looking towards Westminster Bridge, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament - I want to be sure to draw some of the familiar views while I'm still here in London.

We are moving away at the end of this school year - the plans involve a summer full of travel and household logistics, and then we're moving to Prague, where I have a new teaching job for the next two years. Another beautiful city with lots to draw, but meanwhile, am appreciating every moment in this particular landscape.

Left after dinner was made.

Pencil, then watercolor, to try to catch the feeling of oldest child reading. (William Morris, I think.)

More citrus.
day20150109.jpg

Twisted into an extra loop.

day20150108.jpg

Like small peppery abstractions.
day20150107.jpg

One of the perfect flavors of midwinter.

Recycling bag.

On the table - a flower fallen from a Christmas arrangement, and a crumpled tissue. We all are fighting colds.

St. Paul's Cathedral and other buildings, seen from the Thames.

This one was perfectly ripe.

A day trip to Brighton. A pot of tea.

Happy New Year!  All is well - and I did draw every day in 2014, but I took a break from posting, and once I got behind, catching up became too daunting. At some point, I will figure out a way to get all of those pictures online. Meanwhile, a new year, and a return (I hope) to daily posting.

New Year's Eve.

Looking up the coast from Kilauea Point.

Looking up...

Lined up on the countertop.

I noticed that at one spot the ocean was darker than the sky, and that at another, it was lighter. So at one point they are the same, and the horizon disappears.
