my somewhat daily drawing habit

10 October, 2012

With all of my projects, paintings and drawings are the most stubbornly spontaneous. They never seem to allow me to keep myself on some kind of schedule. In September I had made up my mind that I was going to do a daily drawing project and I did fantastically up until around the last week […]

For the locals: RI election results

5 November, 2008

Just a quick note for my fellow Rhode Islanders, go to to get full election results for our state.   Not many surprises here, but I’m still delighted.  We have a very, very liberal-leaning state. And if you read my post yesterday on Question 2, I am SO happy to say that it passed by […]
