More New Work

I’ve sat and watched my children endlessly draw with colored
pencils but it’s never occurred to me to try this medium for myself.
Until now that is and I’m so happy with the results.

First up is another from my travel series. These kids were gathered around a
man who had just shimmied up a palm tree to retrieve a pile of coconuts.
We all sat and drank the delicious milk from those nuts.

And next I felt inspired by the amazingly beautiful day in Brooklyn where Spring
really feels like it’s sprung. The innocent joy a large, bright bunch of balloons
can evoke in a child again drawn with some good old colored pencils.
