By Popular Demand....

I just wanted to share with you all a couple of the sketches/ paintings I've done of my new daughter, Abigail Jean Serido. I know it's not urban-ee, but I think we can make an exception just this once. Thanks for all of your kind words, and one of these days I'm sure I'll bring her along on a sketch crawl so you can meet her in person.

Abby's I'm hungry face, casein in Holbein watercolor sketchbook

The Sleeping Baby, watercolor in Holbein watercolor sketchbook


  1. These are wonderful, wonderful portraits! Thank you for posting them! The richness of the color in the skin tones, and the excellent emotion captured on her face in each sketch--very moving and inspiring.

    (And, I daresay one of the key components of an urban environment is the people who live there...So welcome to Portland, tiny new human!)

  2. So great. I love the contrast between the two - the primal style of the first, and the delicate style of the second.

  3. Really lovely. the second one is so tender ... congratulations:)
