I am losing my light, but for one quick moment all of the drypoint lines have darkened. They are usually white while I am drawing, so it’s a rare pleasure to see the positive image this early.
Inspired by our demo print from the Rusty Barn workshop, I’ve been cooking up a few more pastries in the studio – and possibly making more frequent trips to Berkeley Bowl.

It’s been a good year. Looking forward to the next one!
Both at Kala and in my studio, the morning is the best time to make color decisions. I try to curate editions and use watercolors during the day – before the sun starts dropping. In the winter, it can be quite a race.
To celebrate the solstice and six months of ever more generous light, here’s a studio shot of a new edition at an angle. This is Girl and Silver I & II before the watercolor.
