Debby Kaspari travels the world with sketchbook and binoculars, drawing and painting in wild and not-so-wild landscapes. Norman, Oklahoma is her home base, and she lives there with her tropical ecologist husband and a mackerel tabby named Gizmo.
Exploring the natural world with pencil and paper from high atop a one-story bungalow in the middle of Oklahoma. Currently on sabbatical in Copenhagen, Denmark, until December, 2014.
Quote of the Week
Human muscle could no longer
cultivate the fields. Pines grew up in the
pastures and overshadowed the feed of
the cattle. Black alders sprouted thickly
by the brooks and encroached upon the
mowing. Brush filled in the roadsides
and miles of little traveled highway were
abandoned. Nature was closing in, year
in and year out, by summer increasing
the growth of brush and trees, by winter
filling the long miles of lonely road with
deep drifts of snow.
