All the ceramic pots are sold, more on the way, paintings and sculpts await development, grant apps need writing… but for now here’s one of my daily sketches from earlier in the year, during the ‘first wave’, to share.
Now that we are deeply back into winter as well as guarding against the ‘second wave’, this is once again a common view from my end of the couch during quiet moments. It shows time spent online, and us wrapped in blankets, surrounded by comfort-seeking cats, until it’s time to go do farm chores.
A slightly different view of the Night Milker, whom some may remember from the painting a Brent’s Place in 2020. Grateful for those quiet, safe moments in our less-than-perfect but cosy house. Stay safe.

I love pencil sketches, they seem so personal. And these are beautiful.
It’s been a while since I’ve done pencil sketches. These are well done! Love how you’ve captured certain moments in your day. Thanks for sharing your art!
Beautiful. They take us right there.
These are so nice. I love the detail in the stable interior sketch.
Your pencil sketches are truly beautiful Erica! I especially love the stable and the tractor.
These are all marvellous Erica! So we’ll observed and sensitively rendered.
I was particularly struck by the three cats drawing. Love the composition, repetition of forms, the graphic shapes. Truly superb!
Thank you for sharing.
Very nice! My favorite is the stable! But I enjoyed all of these sketches. Talented for sure!
Erica, your drawings are amazing! I see them on Facebook and Instagram and am always awed by your huge talent. I love them all!
