I am a blogger and have written 7 books, so I have lots of experience with digital writing. When I want to think more deeply about what I am writing, create a message that won’t get stuck in an inbox, or when I want to sketch and doodle, my choice is a fountain pen. I love being able to choose inks and nibs, and avoid adding disposable pens to the landfill. Don’t be intimidated– modern pens are easy to use! Come learn to write with a fountain pen. You will also learn how fountain pens work, and how to maintain them so you can treasure a pen for years to come.

Need a creative interlude?

Life is hectic, art-making is rejuvenating!

I find that art-making  gives me the chance to observe the world around me and reflect. I offer participatory classes through community organizations and art stores that give artists, non-artists, and would-be artists, a chance to be creative. Learn more from these short media pieces.

Car art: Winter can’t stop us!

I love painting outdoors, but not when it is cold!

It is beautiful in the winter. With leaves off the trees, the landscape opens up. Here is Colorado we are inspired by the brilliant blue skies in contrast with the evergreens and snow. The short days mean afternoon skies can be dramatic, with piercing sun and streaks of color. Guess it is time to journal in the car!

 

Watercolor pencils and pen-and-ink are ideal in a tight space.

The fewer supplies to juggle, the better, when doing art journaling from the car! Watercolor pencils are great for this purpose. Sketch major shapes, fill in colors, and make notes about time, date, place, and characteristics of the setting. When you get back to your home or studio, use water to blend colors and highlight important features. Sometimes I prefer to sketch in pen, then add watercolor later.
