  1. Hello Jim — I thought I’d let you know, as I said I would, that my ink drawings are up. I’d like my drawing to get looser, but that will come as I learn the “way of ink, water, brush and nib.”

  2. Anna—I’m looking forward to seeing some of your drawings. My Grandfather did some many years ago of some architectural subjects, a cathedral, a bridge. (He was in fact an architect.) Perhaps I’ll put one up one of these days, if I can get a good picture. It’s not an easy medium to work in.

  3. Jim, I like it very much. It tremors with beauty. I’ve just bought myself India ink and nibs and a beautiful wooden handle for the nib to fit into. I plan on doing some ink drawings, self portraits and landscapes. I’ll post one sometime in July. Keep an eye out for it.

  4. Ah Jim, they teach you in art school to allow freedom and accident to create magic on canvas or paper. It is not the object that counts, but the life of the object. Ethel’s wonderful at capturing that life, and, Parkinsons or not, you are just as wonderful.

  5. Hi Anna—
    It’s on 19” X 24” 100 lb. Bristol paper and I used oil pastels by Sennelier, which are amazing to work with. You can get them in large crayons. And, yes, I am the ‘artist’—nice of you to put it that way. I’ve been exploring the problems and efforts of drawing/ painting/ coloring with a serious Parkinson’s disease tremor in my right arm. A lot of what I do, I simply mess up. This one…we’ll, I sort of like it. Obviously I’ve been looking at Chinese landscapes. Glad you like it.

  6. Jim – I’d like to know a bit more about this work. Are you its artist, and what medium was used here?
