Welcome back!  Good to see you.

I’ve enjoyed my break, making new work and reorganizing my cyber space.  I’ll be dropping by your space very soon.

Just to keep things fresh, I’ll be posting a little more often, but with less scheduled regularity. Today’s sketch is one in a series of very quick watercolor figure sketches, inspired by old family photos.  I’ve been digging into the past, mining subtleties that influence the present.  I hope you’ll enjoy following along with my efforts.

It’s good to be back!
