Just a few quick sketches of the Pantheon from memory ... it's snowing and I didn't want to head out there just yet, so this was a brief diversion and a half-hearted attempt to begin the "sketch-a-day" thing that so many sketch artists seem able to do. I don't know that I'll ever be so dedicated, but I do feel compelled to try ... sort of ... occasionally ... I guess.
I teach architecture at the University of Idaho - design studios, architectural graphics courses, and a professional practice course. One of my passions outside of teaching ... and music, and plants, and mycology, and ... is observing and understanding the world through sketching with various media, such as pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolor. Passing along the same skill and interest to students is a goal I've pursued through my teaching here in Moscow, Idaho, and through an 8-week study-abroad program in Rome each summer.
