Past and Recent Artwork

This first photo below is a collage of sketches I drew a few years ago.  I was reorganizing some notebooks, and pulled these out to take photos.  I find it rewarding to discover past art and craftwork and recall what I was trying to do at the time – plus I find it fun to… Continue reading Past and Recent Artwork

Master Bedroom Renovation
