...Hard at work on the photos of the trip, and hoping to get a few sketch book pages up on the blog soon also. In the meantime, one panorama from the rain forest, El Yunque, in Puerto Rico. Michelle took me on hike to the river and we swam/hiked from pool to pool. Other than the four family dogs, we had the place to ourselves. Remarkable, and a very special afternoon.

I continue to make black and white grid drawings like these in my sketchbook. But the thought this week was to get a few of the variations onto 12 x 12 panels. These three are the results thus far. I have plenty of panels on hand and hope to make one a day until the Holiday Break. I will be on vacation from December 18 until December 25. Do not stop by the gallery/studio, it will be closed. Have a great Holiday.

Another vintage Michael McGuire drawing. Although I make variations on this theme still, the galaxy imagery from 2008/2009 is mostly gone. It was fun to come across this watercolor from 2008, a modification of the watercolor and rubbing alcohol process I occasionally use. This time I gridded out the points where the rubbing alcohol would be applied, and then worked my way out in a spiral using a mixture of blues in watercolor.
