Attending the opening reception of the show, I was delighted to receive an “Honorable Mention” award for my drawing “A Walk by the Pond” (on left).

  1. Hi David,
    While researching writing/drawing instruments I can use in my new Lokta paper journal, I came across your fine art webpage. I just want to say how beautiful I find your artwork! I wish you lots of success! Happy New Year!


    • Jill,
      Thank you for your kind words, and your New Year’s greeting. Obviously I love Lokta paper. I’m partial to the solid Lemon Yellow paper, and the line work in my drawings is drawn with a 2B graphite pencil. Enjoy your journaling and I, in return, wish you a very Happy New Year!
