About The Artist

Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States
Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

Boogie Board Drawing #4

Garden Varieties #4 • Original Drawing, Boogie Board Tablet
A friend sent me an email, asking me what prompted my interest in using the Boogie Board tablet to make drawings.

Well, I love to draw and have been wanting to do some drawing for awhile, just to loosen up and indulge in creative "play." However, while preparing for the April show in Albuquerque, I had neither the time nor space to do so, and lacked enthusiasm for "traditional" methods and materials.

A few weeks ago I came across an electronic writing/drawing tablet called a Boogie Board on eBay, and bid on it. Since its arrival, I've been doing a drawing a day, enjoying the process immensely, and excited about the possibilities.

I also like that the Boogie Board Tablet is a "green" alternative to paper. After finishing the drawing, you just press the erase button to clear the image, which brings up a new blank "page" (screen). The Boogie Board will erase 50,000 times, so it replaces quite a few traditional paper sketchpads!

The Boogie Board Tablet comes in colors (bright pretty ones) and retails for about $40. I bought mine on eBay for $29 and a few dollars for shipping. Of course, you can purchase one on Amazon, too.

Thanks for taking a look. Have a great day!
