with the house full of guest from my wife’s side of the family, the only sanctuary i can find is between the pages of my moleskine…
latest updates: sanctuary
My entry for Junes challenge Sanctuary! The actual stained glass window is of a Bishop of Chichester commemorated in Berwick church Sussex.I hope he does not mind me taking a few liberties with his reading material! It may give him a few different answers to the problems of the world than the original he holds in the church, who knows.

I started a new moly today and here is the first painting in it. I hope this qualifies for “Sanctuary” because it really is. The man who designed this garden has been doing so for over 30 years, and it is open to the public four days a week. He is now in his 80s and is still hosting the restaurant that is there. You can get an idea of the place if you google “Big Springs Garden, Sierra City, CA”. Last year I spent a lot of time there as a weed puller and planter with a volunteer group, but I admit, I spent more time looking at the scenery that I spent working. It was modeled after Monet’s Garden with his own touches in a different setting. I tried to find a happy medium here between some lines and just watercolor, but am not too thrilled with the heavy line under the bridge reflection. Oh well! Try again!
By the way, this Moly does not have the perforations as my last ones did, and I miss them. I guess if there’s anything I want to frame I will have to use a box cutter.
Sanctuary-at home, napping with dogs-TV on. This is my favorite thing to do on a Saturday afternoon. Pencil, watered-down ink in a waterbrush, rapidograph pens, watercolor in moleskine sketchbook.
One of the most comforting things I can think of is curling up with a cup of hot tea or cocoa and being completely at peace with myself and my world, reflecting and musing on whatever comes to mind.
This is my submission for theme challenge #2 (theme challenge for the month of June 2009).
My submission for “Sanctuary”. Not sure how much of a sanctuary this was in reality because the little guy fell out and I had to put him back before the cat got him. But I like the chubby little guy, and he must have survived because he came to see me for a few years after that every time I was out in the yard—at least I think it was him because he would come very close and chirp at me like he knew me (yes, I think other creatures do have memory).
