For the past two years I’ve been doing a “sketch-of-day.” The sketches actually have turned out to be small watercolors done directly from life, drawn in ink, then watercolor added.

I’m now posting my daily sketches on instagram (Instagram – @lrichcolors) and on Facebook (Leslie Rich).

Though my subjects are inspired by my travels both her and abroad, I find some of my most resonant themes in Northern California, where I have lived for over thirty years.

I reflect on how the sense of place affects my own interior landscape.
