A Collection Of Sketchbooks

Over the years I've collected a number of sketchbooks...

...and filled them with sketches of daily life, ideas for paintings and copies of Old Masters artwork.

A few close-ups:

Our living room and dining room.

Architectural detail of the Flat Iron Building in Fort Worth.

Study of one of the subjects in John Singer Sargent's painting, "The Pailleron Children".

Study for a larger watercolor of a geranium pot in Portugal.


  1. How neat to see these sketchbooks. They must be priceless to you.

  2. Very nice James. I love looking at sketch books, it's almost like being allowed to read someones diary. Thanks for sharing.
