Downtown Vineyard

Miss the vineyards and lush hills in northern California, the way vines and orchards form quilt patterns on the hills. I appreciate the nearness of the beach and add brighter colors to the concrete landscape of downtown Long Beach.

All the fishes in the deep blue sea

Bits and pieces make up a life. Some people count fishes.

Warm love. A breath of life.

Tea Tins in moleskine

Pre-sketch for moleskine. I like it better than the one in the moleskine. Looser and more life in it.

Mini bottle of Tabasco from a stay on the Queen Mary Hotel, small Wasabi tin, Japanese tea tin and old rusty Chinese Po Nee Tea. I thought if I sketched these then I would be more willing to let go of them, someday, maybe.

Blue and White

Drew some things I found attractive, bits and pieces from various magazines. Strawberries from photo taken by kazumiwannabe. Blue ballpoint pen in moleskine.

Home Again

View into the bedroom, late afternoon breeze. Removed the door and two panels of obscure glass to open the space, let in more sun. Buddha, stage left, isn't really hanging out in the bedroom. Just imaginary.

Hitchcock filmed "The Birds" at Bodega Bay. This church is in Bodega, about 5 miles south.
