Sketchbook 11.14.16

Are you sensing a theme here? White objects photographed in color. It's a conceit I return to often. Why? I'm not entirely sure. I suspect the reasons behind it shift from moment to moment. Currently, these clean, spare images offer a visual respite from the chaotic clutter that surrounds me as we continue to purge and curate our possessions.

Speaking of which, I just unearthed these doodles from February. Not only a nudge to resume my abandoned depiction of Isis; these stitches are also a welcomed reminder of a few magical days spent in the winter woods of New Hampshire last February, gathered with a group of creative, warm, open, and supportive women.


  1. these are beautiful, Laurie. I love them.

    1. Thanks, Annette! And thanks for stopping by. This sketchbook series was prompted by our conversation about Scum off the Top. So THANK YOU. (Hope I described your term accurately

    2. Oh how cool! I'm so happy our convo prompted these! & Yes, you quoted me correctly: "Scum off the top." No judgement. Just work like mad and something does emerge.
