Sketches for December


This is just some December sketches.  The nativity scene was from a hospital scene. The snowman was from a grocery store.  The pink Pointsettia was drawn with a new pen from a friend with new pink ink.

Cloudcroft Art Workshops

I am excited that I was invited to go to Cloudcroft NM and teach sketching at their wonderful old building and great little town. The weather is awesome and is so refreshing to be there.
The workshop will be June 3-6. There is a reception on Sunday June 2, at 6 PM.

Watercolor and Ink Sketchbook Memories
Using your photos, pen, ink, watercolor, gouache and/or casein in the comfort of the studio you will create wonderful memory books that you and your family will treasure forever. This workshop is great for those wanting to create a sketchbook habit, or those struggling with sketching and drawing. Especially beginner sketchers. Your sketchbook style will become like your handwriting, your own personal mark. Suzy believes anybody can draw with practice, just like learning to write.

I will also furnish photos from Cloudcroft and we will work along together making a book with our photos, or you can bring your own photos and work from them.

Being married to a farmer, living on the family farm in west Texas, Suzy has been painting for 30 years working in pastel, pencil, watercolor, gouache, acrylic and collage. She didn’t attend schools that taught art. Learning on her own in her backyard studio has allowed her to teach what she loves and enjoys, in Texas, New Mexico, Italy and in 2020 Poland and Italy. Her favorite thing is keeping a daily sketchbook, and nostalgic and patriotic art. She has won numerous awards and teaches monthly watercolor classes, workshops using watercolor, collages and sketching. She has been in 3 of the North Light Incite mixed media books, as well as the Sketch Book Magazine when it was being published.
Christopher Cross, the singer, purchased one of her watercolor paintings to use on his Christmas album. She is signature members of SWS, AOT, SWA, NMWS, and WYWS. Affiliate member of AWS and NWS.

Karla's Cabo Sketchbook


Keri and I took Karla (granddaughter) to Cabo for her graduation in 2013, and I am just finishing her sketchbook from our trip.  I found the sketchbook while there. It had gray paper and the ugly man on the front! I have never seen so many skeletons!  It was fun to do but i started it and then stuck back, so this year I got it back out and finished it.  I enjoyed reliving our fun trip.

Wonderful Italy Memories

The trip was unbelievable! I loved every minute of it. My daughter and sister went too. We had so much fun.  We have so many photos it would be hard to share them all, plus I have added some new sketches.  So many wonderful memories. Some of my good friends and students went too!
There are plans for going back in 2020!
I can't believe this year is almost over, so I am wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a great 2019!
