Hello, I'm Rachael.

I am primarily a painter and paper doll maker and friendly multi-tasker/ troublemaker in Upstate New York.I've been keeping this little blog since 2004, I think. And there is hopefully a value in reading these words, looking at these pictures, clearly I find joy in writing 'em up and sending 'em out, even if I don't always have the time. I try to blog every once in a while but mostly I try to write a real letter every day (this year that is), draw and paint, sew, and instigate other people's creative endeavors.
Leave me a comment (I'm more likely to communicate directly than in the comments), ask me a question, do your best to share what you have to say, OK? Thanks

    drawing suggestions for March for Rochester...

    I looked up and realized. There's a lot going in the month of March in Rochester, NY if you happen to be someone who likes to draw and wander around the city. The sun has come out and the snow is very busy melting. I will simply be trying to catch as much of it (art, sun, post-winter socialization) as I can... here goes with what I knows...

  • Thursday March 11, itinerant artist Jim Mott has a show opening at St. John Fisher college and will give a talk about itmore information here
  • Saturday March 20 The Creative Workshop, the art school at the Memorial Art Gallery, will have a free/fun Open House from 11:30 to 4:30. There's going to be a little of everything- from painting to pottery to drawing, sewing and jewelry. I'm biased because I plan the event, but I'm also reminded by all of the teachers and students and visitors how much they love the Open Houses. And it'll be the last time to see this show.
  • Sunday March 21
  • Thursday March 24 Novelist Ann Patchett will be in town to speak. All of Rochester is s'posed to be reading Bel Canto, so the talks should all geared towards the general public-- I find engaging writers on stages to be ridiculuously fun to draw...
  • and then on Saturday March 27 Rochester Sketchcrawl will be meeting to draw at the Rundel Library downtown at 2pm to draw. Panorama by Will Yurman for the Democrat & Chronicle, he's got many more of them and they're all really cool. Rochester Sketchcrawl BlogMost up-to-date info will be on our blog (thanks to Genine!)

    Should all be awesome, off to sharpen my pencils...and begin!
