The drawings in the three-book series – Morning Coffee, Afternoon Tea, and Evening Wine- grew out of my observations of people who come together to swap stories with friends, laugh, debate politics, interview for a job, read the paper or a book, or simply stare out of a window.
I have taught college religion and philosophy, but in my forties, at the encouragement of a colleague, I purchased a sketchbook. Drawing provided me a way of observing life with greater care than my casual observations or academic studies had ever disclosed.
I could draw a perfect likeness of a model holding a pose over several hours, but to learn how to draw people in motion, I began sketching in my local New York City Coffee shop. Later, I moved out west, where I added several tea houses and a bistro to my favorite places to draw.
These books are a celebration of shared moments in our lives through my pen and ink – accompanied by the words of wiser people than I.
