(above) This trunk was found at a pig farm in Barkhamsted, Connecticut. I was immediately drawn to the strong pattern of the wavy rings (the result of irregularities in the growth of the hole). In the print, a cut branch creates a prominent form that extends from the center to the right edge, and various insect holes dot the lower perimeter of the block.

"On the surface, the new Learning To See series of mini-books from PA Press might appear a little low-key. Gift Book-like. But they’re more and better than that. They’re a quick read and really engaging; especially if you haven’t drawn for a while but would like to. It’s “How To Draw” for grown ups with loads of exercises and ways to approach making marks that I’d not given any thought to since life drawing classes at college, plus loads of techniques I’ve never tried before.”
