Happy Halloween! Charcoal is not just for your next barbecue. Most of my drawings are done in charcoal. Vine charcoal is by far one of the most flexible drawing mediums and one of my favorites.

What do think of when I say trees? Autumn, raking, old man of the forest, Green Man? It’s a fun play of word association. I love trees in all their glory. I grew up in an area that had a huge variety of trees, both deciduous and evergreen. Falls there were ablaze in color.

I had an Instructor in grad school tell me that he didn’t know why anyone would paint landscapes since they were so hard to make into a good painting. It felt like a challenge set to me then and it still echoes in my thoughts today.

I spent most of my studio time last week drawing. Drawing is one of my favorite studio activities. I can draw for 15 minutes to two hours depending on the time available to me that particular day.
