It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (January 21): 01/21/19
The Ghost Road took most of my reading time this week. It's a great but dense read. Also a lot of my reading time was taken up with art.
I've now started on my last landscape for this trio. This one is of a sunflower farm near UC Davis along I8 heading towards Sacramento. The big feature though is the cloud which will be taking most of my time and effort on this piece.
Also I spent the week planning out my 32 pages for a sketchbook I'm filling for Project Sketchbook. It will be digitized once it's sent back to Brooklyn and I'll share the link. The book is due by the end of March. Below is my title page.
Finally, the Blood Wolf Moon was tonight and I have about 200 photos. I'll share some next week.

Your paintings are magnificent. I can almost hear the roar of the ocean.

Thank you. They were fun to work on.

Your paintings are wonderful. I am impressed by your skill -- and having time to read and paint.
I like the looks of SOS by Night and Beyond: the Queer Sci-Fi & Fantasy Comic Anthology.
Hope you had a good week of Happy Reading!

Both books were very good. It was fun working on those paintings.

I have Naomis Too on my #MustReadin2019 list, so I'm excited to get to that one in the coming weeks. And Black Enough was just catalogued at my local library, so I will have to grab it when it's available. Thanks for the shares, Sarah!

Naomis Too disappointed me. The opening chapters dragged for me with the girls getting used to their new school. There are good observations on racism and unequal way children are treated based on wrongheaded assumptions but the flow was just off. I hope you have a better a time with it. Black Enough, meanwhile, is delightful and a quick read.

Your artwork is beautifu! I'm curious about Black Enough. Enjoy your reading week.
Comment #10: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 17:45:00
Black Enough is a collection of short stories. It's a delightful book. I will be reviewing it soon.

Sometimes being creative needs to take over your reading time!
Comment #12: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 17:45:00
I spending about three hours each week on art and will be until I get the sketchbook finished.
Comment #13: Monday, January, 21, 2019 at 11:33:09
Lovely landscapes. I love that part of the state (near UC Davis).
Enjoy your books and your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #14: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 17:59:00
Thanks. I'll post updates of the Davis painting after I work on it more.
Comment #15: Monday, January, 21, 2019 at 12:27:46
Omg I loved Syd Hoff so much as a kid! I plan on getting a set of his books for Wyatt.
Your artwork is stunning this week! Thanks for sharing it with us. I have been trying to get my husband to do the Project Sketchbook thing too. He is a talented guy. :)
Comment #16: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 18:03:00
I was also a Syd Hoff fan as a kid. I hope Wyatt enjoys them too. The Sketchbook Project is fun but also a lot of work. If he has other deadlines, I don't think it would be a good thing for him right now.
Comment #17: Monday, January 21, 2019 at 13:53:24
Great variety of books. I missed the lunar eclipse/blood moon because of cold and clouds. I'll be eager to see your pictures. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #18: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 18:07:00
I missed totality because of rain but I got some decent shots of the stuff beforehand.
Comment #19: Monday, January 21, 2019 at 16:16:09
Your art is always fun to look at. And ooh blood moon pics. We went out and looked but didn't take any pics sadly.
Comment #20: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 18:12:00
I didn't see totality because it began to pour. But I'll post a couple shots next week.
Comment #21: Monday, January 21, 2019 at 18:53:33
Your paintings are so wonderful. You are very creative.

Great selection of books, and your paintings are so good! Good luck with your sketchbook project. Thanks for visiting my book list today!
Comment #24: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 18:15:00
The sketchbook will just take scheduling time to paint and draw. I have all the pages planned. I need about three hours every week for the next two months.
Comment #25: Monday, January 21, 2019 at 20:58:50
Your artwork is beautiful... definitely worth using some reading time! The Blood Wolf Moon is spectacular. Wish I had a camera able to capture some of it!
Comment #26: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 18:22:00
I wish it hadn't rained so I could have photographed totality.
Comment #27: Monday, January 21, 2019 at 22:56:42
Body on Baker Street looks good. Beautiful painting.
Comment #28: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 18:22:00
It was a fun book.
Comment #29: Tuesday, January, 22, 2019 at 00:45:36
