Above are a couple of recent landscape drawings. Last year, I made several hundred of these types of studies. Most of the drawings are of a small area of the Charles River near my home. The philosopher says "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man."
 
am addicted to drawing this place.
 
I just self-published a small book of the 2015 drawings. This book is A5 format, full color, runs 358 pages and costs $22.00. Check it out here. There may be a few bad drawings in this book but the point is more my cumulative presence and a sense of Time in a specific Place. Sometimes it feels like civil disobedience to stop in the rushing flow of this anxious age.
