I am not a writer but have kept journals for most of my life. Several years ago, well before starting my blog, I started a "Pear Journal" consisting of drawings of pears whose "personalities" or "poses" illustrated what had happened to me on that particular day. As a narrative painter, this vehicle to express myself fit me perfectly.

Then came the internet and the blog. I seized this new medium and here is the result: a daily drawing or painting for 365 days.

Most of this work is graphite on paper, some oils or acrylics on canvas, also gouache on paper.
