January 1, 2006

This is a new foray into the electronic world. It is being done to push myself into drawing and sketching and writing regularly, something that has been neglected over the past few years.

It will be an illustrated snapshot of life around me in Newfoundland and other places as I travel. It may be simple sketches and short descriptions to more complex paintings and longer narratives. But it will happen daily and it will provide a view into a section of my life.

January 1st isn't a time of resolution making for me, but more of expectation for myself, so if I don't make the grade, I don't beat myself up over it. My first expectation has been met already today by starting this. I will complete it by adding a finished portrait of my dog Biscuit, who was put to sleep a month ago today at the age of 16. He is missed and will be remembered always.
