Just having fun.

#inktober #haikutober Day 22

I saw this vase yesterday at the motel so had to sketch because I knew I would be busy today. It is a beautiful Native American example of their creativity 


‘A fine example

Native creativity

Pottery splendor’

Pens: TWSBI and Lamy with blue ink and a new fountain pen with red ink.

#inktober #haikutober Day 21

I did this sketch in that little garden nook yesterday. A sculpture of 2 children playing with water. 


‘Garden creation

Jug to basket to basket

It’s water magic’

Pens: TWSBI, Pentel brush pen and Lamy filled with blue ink

Home today!!

#inktober #haikutober Day 20. I did this quick sketch yesterday, in fact so fast I am writing the haiku right now. 

‘A really fast sketch

Two people in a restaurant

Modeling for me’

Pen: Ahab with Lexi gray ink

#inktober #haikutober Day 19. On the road.

We walk into the motel and there is a small vase of daisies….ok, we’re staying here. Very quick sketch. Haiku:

‘Daisies on the desk

Welcoming us to come in

So of course we did’

Pens: TWSBI Eco and Lamy Safari

#inktober #haikutober Day 18 dedicated to my friends; some I see all the time, some I’ve never seen and some I will see soon. 


A lot of red grapes

Make a delicious red wine

To enjoy wit friends’

We start our journey southwest today!


I’m reblogging this because it’s so exciting when a friend publishes a first book. Freya is my haiku friend.

Today is a very emotional day for me…
Today I am launching my first poetry collection!
Insides is my journey through cancer, surgery and chemotherapy.
The process of writing it was initially a therapy for myself but I also wanted to comfort other cancer sufferers as well as trying to convey to those who have no experience of the disease, what it means to have cancer.
From darkness into light, from the depths of exhaustion through a slow rise to recovery; this is a very personal journey.
Will you join me?
In this collection I’m not hiding behind any of my fictional characters such as Dracomagan or Parsley. This is me on a journey I will never, ever forget.
It is available at Amazon UK and Amazon US.
At the moment, it’s only available as an e-book – the paperback will be released in 2017.
And I’ve also produced…
