Goodbye Blogspot

Hi friends,

This is my final post from

But I have a new blog!
If you received an email from me in the last 3 days about the launch of my new website design, you are already on the new blog mailing list. If you did not, and you would like to continue receiving my occasional posts, here is how:

This link will take you to my newly designed website and the new version of my blog: Diary of a Stealth Sketcher.   Scroll down to the sign up form, enter your email, and you will continue to receive news bulletins, comments, and photos of my new work.

In the coming months I will be telling you more about the artist's life and studio practices, along with all the usual things I have been blogging about since June of 2008.

Thank you all for faithfully following, for your encouragement and comments over the years!
Let's keep in touch!

Very best wishes,
Carol Lambert

Sublime to ridiculous

Well, perhaps not ridiculous, but oddly attractive and intriguing. I am referring to the Romanesco Broccoli, which is a popular crop here in Alaska. We grow cruciferous very nicely!

These two are from the South Anchorage Farmers' Market. The medium is silverpoint on a kind of sulphite paper called "Plike". It yields a darker line than traditionally prepared silverpoint ground.

And here is the sublime, or at least the Rococo, that we find in Alaska during late summer. Fireweed in June is green, straight, and topped with magenta flowers. Fireweed in September is something else entirely.

Goblet, Napkin, and Vine

Going through my inventory, I find that I never posted this one on the blog! I completed it last September, then life must have gotten busy.

The green goblet had been in the studio for a long time, waiting to take center stage in a painting. The drawing behind it is one of a grape vine I did on location in the south of France a few years ago. Now to pour the wine!
