Just like my life, my blog and journal posts are all mixed up. I always save the last page in each journal for a self-portrait and this was in the Moleskine watercolor notebook that I finished last month.

I did the sketch standing at the big mirror in my studio which I just knew would be great for self portraits. The unlovely, but much-loved apparel in the sketch are a T-shirt my son made for me back when he was a teenage graffiti artist, and my favorite, funky, old grey sweatshirt that I wear all the time at home/in the studio.

The past month has been a bit of a wild ride, with a major transition in progress, which I’ll write about and celebrate here once it’s complete. In the meantime, I’ll see if I can catch up with more posting, painting and drawing!

I’m new to following your blog. Was afraid this was the end of it. Happy to learn that it’s just the end of a journal. I enjoy your art and postings.


Hi Gail, Thanks for visiting my blog and for writing. I’m sorry if I worried you. I’ve been doing my blog since early 2006 and plan to keep at it for a long time, probably with more posting go forward than I’d been doing lately. Jana
