Dot Theory.




Above is another new drawing that I completed in last evenings drawing session, It is not large but it does have a presence.


Above is a drawing I did a couple of summers ago for and exhibition, I like the challenge of draing on different surfaces.

Above and below are painted dots on a canvas bag, I like to keep my pens in them.


Above and below are several drawings that I have done on some bark that was donated by our friend Tree Stewart. I like to get donations and challenges to draw on I wander what I will get given this coming year.
